HC Deb 28 July 1915 vol 73 cc2291-2W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether regulations are in force whereby only one parent may visit a wounded officer at Boulogne; and whether he will endeavour to obtain permission for both parents to visit wounded sons at places such as Boulogne, which are outside the zone of immediate danger?


The answer to the first part of the quesion is in the affirmative. Owing to the limits to the accommodation available, and on other grounds, only a limited number of persons can receive permission to visit wounded relatives. If the number allowed to go in each individual case were increased, it would be necessary to diminish the number of cases in which visits could be permitted.
