HC Deb 26 March 1925 vol 182 cc642-3W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether the papers transferred to the Ministry by the Ministry of National Service giving particulars of recruits under the Compulsory Service and Enlistment Acts during the War have been destroyed; and, if not, what purpose is served by retaining the papers?

Lieut.-Colonel STANLEY

The only documents relating to individual men transferred from the Ministry of National Service to the Ministry were those of men who did not in fact serve during the great War. These documents have already been destroyed.
