HC Deb 26 February 1919 vol 112 cc1772-3W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether He is aware of the dissatisfaction in Wimbledon of the treatment accorded to soldiers returning to Wimbledon camp for demobilisation, who are obliged to walk with full kit up the steep Wimbledon Hill, in consequence of which many of them, particularly those from hot climates fall out exhausted and ill; and whether he will now provide suitable motor lorry accommodation to carry the kits of the men, or, if not, make arrangements for the demobilisation of the men in the town without the necessity of walking up the hill?

Captain GUEST

This matter is being investigated, and I will communicate with my hon. Friend in due course.
