HC Deb 28 July 1914 vol 65 c1134W

asked the Secretary of State for War, whether he is aware that in the early part of this month the application of a soldier in the Royal Garrison Artillery, stationed at Jersey, for leave to go for a few days to his home in Barrow in order to see his mother, who was dying, was refused by the order of his commanding officer, that leave was also refused to attend the funeral of this soldier's mother, who died a few days later, and that he thereupon left without leave and was arrested and imprisoned; and whether he will make full inquiries into the facts of the case.


Inquiries are being made into this case.
