HC Deb 07 March 1917 vol 91 c409W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War by whose order and on what authority Private M. Sweeney, No. 9224, 2nd Battalion Irish Guards, a volunteer, now certified by several Army medical officers unfit for active service, being suffering from two chronic and incurable diseases, has nevertheless been recently sent back to France for active service; whether there is military necessity for a man in his condition; and whether he will be sent home and given a pension?


I have asked for inquiries to be made, and the hon. Member will be informed of the result.
