HC Deb 08 July 1919 vol 117 cc1629-30W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware of the complaints of the volunteers returning to South America on Government passages of the treatment they and their wives and children have suffered on the ships of the Royal Mail Steam Packet Company; if he will have the matter investigated; and if he will see that in future these returning soldiers at least have proper accommodation and food?

Colonel L. WILSON

I have been asked to reply. Certain complaints have been received and are being investigated. I shall be glad if the hon. Member will send me any specific complaints he has so that the inquiry may be complete. He will be informed of the result as soon as possible.
