HC Deb 19 February 1917 vol 90 c999W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Michael Francis Leahy, son of Mrs. Bridget Leahy, Kilkee, is now serving as a soldier in the 5th Royal Munster Fusiliers, and that Michael Leahy's mother has forwarded to the authorities a birth certificate showing that he was born on 30th May, 1901, and that consequently he is not sixteen years of age; and will he say whether, in spite of the requests of his mother, it is intended to keep this boy in the Army?


Inquiries are being made, and my hon. Friend will be informed of the result in due course.
