§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Secretary of State for War why Private W. Garton, No. 4,335,983, of the 1st East Yorkshire Regiment, at present stationed at Mullingar, has been refused discharge by purchase; if he is aware that this man's mother is an invalid and the widow of a soldier killed during the late war, and is dependent upon her son; and that Mrs. Garton raised the amount of money necessary to purchase her son's discharge with great difficulty?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
This case is already under investigation, and an early-report is expected from the military authorities in Ireland.
