HC Deb 07 June 1917 vol 94 c355W

asked the Undersecretary of State for War if he is aware that in spite of repeated assurances the instructions issued by the Army Council in November last continue to be disregarded by Army officers, and that the commanding officer of the 23rd battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers has recently instructed officers commanding companies to give greater facilities for leave to men who have been inoculated, and less to those who have not; and whether he will see that the Army Council's instructions shall be observed which make leave depend entirely on the health conditions of the place to be visited, and not on the fact of inoculation?


I have no information that the case is as alleged, but a report has been called for, and I will inform my hon. Friend of the result.
