HC Deb 15 January 1913 vol 46 c2092W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the case of Mrs. Ellen Meaney, of Limerick, who asks that her son, Private John Meaney, a boy enlisted in the 2nd Battalion Royal Munster Fusiliers, Mal-placquet B. K. L., North Camp, Aldershot, should be discharged and returned to her as he was under age when he enlisted and even now is still under age, as shown by his birth certificate; and whether, seeing the poverty of this woman and her claim that she wants her son's help to support the rest of her family, this woman's prayer will be granted and her son discharged?

Colonel SEELY

Inquiries shall be made into this case and my hon. Friend will be informed of the result as soon as possible.
