HC Deb 17 February 1948 vol 447 c978
32. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has now completed his inquiries into the assault on a military patient at the Connaught Hospital, Bramshott, details of which were forwarded on 19th January last; and what disciplinary action has been taken.

Mr. Shinwell

My hon. and gallant Friend will by now have received a letter from my hon. Friend.

Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

Can the Minister give an assurance that my letter would have been answered yesterday if this Question had not been put down?

Mr. Shinwell

That is a very improper reflection on the War Office.
