§ 20. Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he is satisfied with present methods of informing relatives of soldiers receiving injuries in the course of their duties.
§ Mr. Robert C. Brown
Yes. Relatives are automatically informed when a soldier58W is killed or seriously injured, whether or not he was on duty at the time. In cases of lesser injury, when soldiers are able to inform their relatives themselves, they are generally expected to do so.
