HC Deb 06 February 1918 vol 101 c2243W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the charges made against certain privates in the Canadian Forestry Corps stationed at Penrith, Cumberland, for driving wood wagons without lights to the danger of the public, and to the defence set up that the authorities, although applied to on 22nd November last by the officer commanding, had refused to supply any lamps; and whether the War Office will now order the lamps to be supplied or permit the Canadian Forestry Corps to continue to break the law?


Nothing is known of this matter in the War Office. I am calling for a report, and will write to my right lion. Friend.
