HC Deb 05 November 1920 vol 134 c736W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Rifleman M. H. Stoker, No. 40,470, 3rd Battalion Rifle Brigade, is under 18 years of age; that the authorities were twice warned before his enlistment as to his correct age; and, seeing that they accepted him under age without his parents' consent, if he will consider the advisability of releasing him?


Inquiries are being made into this case. It would, however, facilitate the investigations if the hon. Member would furnish me with further particulars as to the warnings alleged to have been given regarding the soldier's correct age before the enlistment.
