§ Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that there are a number of Canadian soldiers who took their discharge in England who now find them-elves workless and their war gratuity almost exhausted; if he is aware that these men have themselves forfeited their legal right to repatriation; and if he will use his good offices in trying to persuade the Dominion Government to give the men free passage home?
§ Lieut.-Colonel AMERY
Yes, Sir. I understand that the matter is under the consideration of the Canadian authorities.
