HC Deb 07 February 1956 vol 548 c165W
5. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that although a signalman, whose number is 23184759 and of whose name he has been informed, is in Catterick Hospital, his parents have twice been notified that he is absent without leave; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Head

I am going carefully into the cause of this unfortunate mistake. I would like to express my regret to his parents.
