§ Mr. F. Maclean
Private Laffin did not go on a route march just before his death. He had, however, taken part in a crosscountry run ten days before. From this he suffered no apparent ill effects, and I understand that there is no evidence that the run could have affected his condition. The non-commissioned officer to whom the hon. Member refers was punished for offences committed in the summer of last year. These were in no way connected with Private Laffin.
