asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Private Joseph Lee, a reservist, of 72, Swarcliffe Road, Sheffield, King's Own Yorkshire Light Infanty, No. 4685818, entered a hospital in Sheffield on 6th February, and was discharged on 30th March; that his last receipt of Army pay of £1 8s.
Mr. George Hall
My Noble Friend is unable to say how soon circumstances will permit of the Committee being set up. As has already been announced, Lord Hailey has consented to serve as Chairman of the Committee. No other appointments to it have yet been made. The general functions of the Committee have been described in the Paper already laid before Parliament, and there is nothing that I could usefully add at this stage.
