§ Lieut.-Colonel Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will order the immediate release on compassinate grounds of Gunner T. Murdock, No. 338556, B Battery, Royal Garrison Artillery, Frenchman's Point, South Shields, whose wife is bedridden and cannot afford to engage anyone to look after herself and her six children, all under twelve years, and who has good employment awaiting him?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
There is no trace of any application on behalf of Gunner Murdoch having been received by the War 45W Office. If, however, this man's case falls within any of the categories prescribed in the instructions governing releases on compassionate grounds, and my Noble Friend will submit a statement certified as required by the instructions, the case will be considered.
