HC Deb 31 May 1916 vol 82 c2733W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War, concerning the case of Lieutenant Ian Turneur, 20th Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers, if he is aware that Lieutenant Turneur was severely kicked on the left thigh and the right calf by a horse while executing his duties on the 8th or 17th December last and was thereby incapacitated for active duty, was advised by his commanding officer on 7th January to go on sick leave because of the results of the accident, which advice he adopted on 11th January, applied for medical examination and treatment on 17th January, to which application he received no reply, whereupon he repeated his application on the 21st or 22nd of the same month, again receiving no reply; if he is aware that, although Lieutenant Turneur has not resigned his commission nor has he been discharged, his pay was stopped on 25th January last and he has been compelled to obtain medical treatment at his own expense, and is still undergoing medical treatment as the result of an accident which happened to him whilst on duty; and whether he will take steps to remedy the grievance under which Lieutenant Turneur is suffering through the carelessness or fault of some officer or officers who have had to deal with the matters complained of?


I am having inquiries made into this case.
