HC Deb 05 March 1918 vol 103 cc1842-3W

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the German Major-General S. Ohmiedecke has been relieved of the command of his division on the grounds of sending out too many patrols and losing too many men in consequence; and, in view of this evidence of the enemy's care for the conservation of manpower, will steps be taken to ensure that the heavy losses of subalterns and men that have been suffered in raiding expeditions in the past will in future be avoided?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As regards the second part, I can add nothing to the many answers which I have given on this subject.
