HC Deb 14 August 1919 vol 119 c1647W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware of the widespread dissatisfaction caused by the continued refusal to allow the discharge, on compassionate grounds, of a soldier who is the only son and sole support of a widowed mother in delicate health and advanced in years; that there are a large number of these cases; and will he have the matter immediately reconsidered with a view to the concession being granted?


An extension of the Regulations governing releases on compassionate grounds is now under consideration. If it is found possible to extend these instructions, cases such as that instanced by my hon. Friend will be provided for in the. new Regulations.
