HC Deb 29 October 1918 vol 110 c1304W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will have inquiries made into the case of Sapper W. Sagar, No. 266077, Royal Engineers, British Expeditionary Force, France, who on two occasions since 9th September has had his pay stopped for comparatively slight offences, the total period of deprivation of pay amounting to sixty-six days; and if, in view of the hardship that is thus inflicted on the man's wife and family, he will take steps to have the case reconsidered?


I am making inquiries, and will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as possible.

Colonel Sir H. GREENWOOD

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he will consider the transfer to home service of Driver William Joseph Sanders, No. M/333854, Army Service Corps, Mechanical Transport, Egyptian Expeditionary Force, in view of the fact that, after serving in France in 1914–15, and receiving his discharge in consequence of wounds, he patriotically volunteered to re-enlist, and has a wife now suffering from an amputated leg, with seven small children to look after?


I will have this case carefully considered, and write to my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as possible.
