§ Mr. STANTON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will take steps to make it better known to our Army that soldiers wounded three times are not compelled to go back to the fighting line and that they have the option of Home service, providing such wounds were not slight, and that they had been treated in hospital for them?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I am afraid that my hon. Friend is misinformed. All men, although wounded to the extent suggested, who are now fit for combatant duty are required for service in France, and I very much regret that in existing circumstances the retention at home of the men referred to cannot at present be considered.
