§ Mr. WATT
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that Private Neil M'Millan, No. 3785, No. 7 Platoon, B Company, of the Glasgow Highlanders, is only 16¾ years of age, yet has been in the trenches in France; that the birth certificate of this boy was sent in a registered letter on 12th July to the officer commanding; that a further registered letter was sent on 27th July, and that the return of this soldier is still delayed or refused; and, if so, will he see that promises made in the House regarding such lads are adhered to by his Departments?
§ Mr. FORSTER
Orders were issued on the 8th instant to the division to which this man belongs to send him to the base for return to England.
