§ Mr. Callaghan
asked the Secretary of State for War if 14676241 Private R. V. Pead, Misken Manor Convalescent Hospital, Pontyclun, will now be released on compassionate grounds in accordance with the letter sent to the hon. Member for Cardiff, South, on 20th December last.
§ Mr. Lawson
As my hon. Friend is aware, authority was given for this soldier's indefinite release on compassionate grounds in December. It was not, however, possible to carry out his release for some time as he was in hospital. He is now fit for discharge from hospital and steps are therefore being taken to release him under Class C.
