HC Deb 25 January 1955 vol 536 c3W
61. Mr. Wyatt

asked the Secretary of State for War why, contrary to Queen's Regulations, the punishment of picking up leaves one by one, while in the view of the public, has been awarded to guardsmen stationed at Wellington Barracks; whether he will cause such punishments to be discontinued; and what action he will take, or has taken, against those responsible.

Mr. F. Maclean

A working party was employed in the normal way clearing the parade ground before a parade in connection with the Remembrance Day Service. Brooms and rakes were used to sweep up the leaves and only the few remaining leaves were picked up by hand.
