HC Deb 19 February 1917 vol 90 cc996-7W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he can see his way to release Corporal Anstee, No. 2338, 1st Royal Gloucestershire Hussars Yeomanry, from further service with the Colours, in order that he may return for the relief of his father, who is an invalid, in the management of Castle Farm, Chippenham, 270 acres, and Stanton Farm, Chippenham, 400 acres; and whether he is aware that, in the event of his being unable to do so, there will be no alternative but to sell the stock and give up one of the farms?


I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to this question printed in the OFFICIAL REPORT of last Thursday, column 813. Perhaps my hon. Friend would give mc any further particulars he may have.
