§ Captain FOXCROFT
asked the Secretary of State for War whether Colonel Murray White, competent military authority for the county of Clare, was recently attacked by a disorderly crowd in the streets of Ennis and seriously injured; whether this officer is still in hospital in England as a result of the assault; and whether there is reason to believe that he is permanently incapacitated for further duty?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I regret to say that Colonel Murray White was recently attacked by a disorderly crowd and seriously injured, as stated in the hon. and gallant Member's question. He is not in hospital, but is on sick leave recommended by a medical board. I am informed that there is no reason to believe that Colonel Murray White is permanently incapacitated for further duty.
