HC Deb 21 December 1954 vol 535 cc253-4W
64. Mr. Collins

asked the Secretary of State for War what action he has taken regarding Company Sergeant-Major Walker and Corporal Shaw, instructors to the Infantry Boys' Battalion, who incited boys in their charge to commit a series of assaults on one of their comrades; and what action he will take with the commanding officer of the battalion.

Mr. F. Maclean

Both the allegations about these non-commissioned officers and the general supervision exercised within the battalion are matters under investigation by the court of inquiry being held at Plymouth.
