HC Deb 04 March 1924 vol 170 cc1202-3W

asked the Secretary of State for War on what grounds the case of Lieutenant C. H. Glendinning was transferred to the India Office for inquiry; and if he will grant an impartial inquiry into the case?


This case has been referred to the India Office, and to the Government of India, for inquiry, because the incidents complained of took place in India, and the Army Council require information from the Indian Government before dealing with the case. When this has been received, the Army Council will be in a position to investigate the case in accordance with the procedure laid down in Section 42 of the Army Act for dealing with the complaint of any officer who considers himself wronged.
