HC Deb 02 August 1965 vol 717 cc241-2W
Mr. Buxton

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will investigate the lack of co-operation and sympathy accorded to the parents of 24045230 Private L. E. J. Wallace, aged 17½ years, who was drowned in Aden in July, four days after his arrival.

Mr. Mulley

I would refer the hon. Member to the letter I sent him. Under our normal rules everything possible was done to help Mr. and Mrs. Wallace in this tragic case.
