§ Sir JOHN ROLLESTON
asked the Under-Secretary for War whether his attention has been called to the case of a man enlisting at the commencement of the War who, with his father, was responsible for the management of a business, and the father dying after his son's departure leaving the widow with young children, who is totally unable to manage the business, which without management must collapse and bring the family to poverty; and whether in such a case the son who enlisted and is serving in India could be released or transferred to some Home service where he could give occasional supervision to his late father's business?
§ Mr. TENNANT
If the hon. Member will furnish the particulars of the case he has in mind the matter will be sympathetically dealt with, and if the case is considered deserving, the Army Council may be able to authorise the man's transfer to Home service.
