§ Mr. F. C. THOMSON
asked the Secretary of State for War why Corporal W. S. Ross, No. 68527, M.M., 3rd Highland Light Infantry, a soldier who endeavoured to enlist in 1915 but was medically rejected, and was subsequently called up in 1916 and is now retained under Army Order 55, is now under orders to proceed to India; and whether he will give instructions to cancel such orders?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
Orders have already been issued that no men retained under Army Order 55 are, under any circumstances, to be sent to India. I am making inquiries into the particular case mentioned, and will acquaint my hon. Friend of the result as soon as possible.
