HC Deb 17 May 1916 vol 82 c1540W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will make inquiry into the case of Private Miller, No. 054,859, 320th, Army Service Corps, who enlisted fourteen months ago and was sent to France three weeks later, where he has been ever since without any leave; and will he see if leave can be granted to him?


I have frequently stated that I cannot undertake to have inquiry made as to why leave has not been given to individual soldiers. The grant of leave is a matter for the discretion of the Commander-in-Chief.
