HC Deb 21 November 1939 vol 353 cc1059-60W
Sir J. Lamb

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the special case of hardship of No. 4917900, Private H. Richardson, Infantry Training Centre, South Staffordshire Regiment, and whether his military training could not be deferred further to enable suitable arrangements to be made for the working of the farm and 20 milking cows, which, owing to an accident to his father resulting in the total loss of his eyesight, will be left with no labour except that of his mother?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

This soldier has been released from military service for six months.
