HC Deb 16 November 1948 vol 458 c15W
14. Mr. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for War why the medical registrar at Woolwich Military Hospital refused Dvr. J. Reeles of Cotswolde Apartments, Oriental Place, Brighton, an extension of leave in spite of the urgent request of the local branch of S.S.A.F.A. and his wife's doctor; particulars of which case have been sent to him.

Mr. Shinwell

The hon. Member has been misinformed. The registrar did not refuse an extension of leave, but after investigation granted a further three days' leave.
