asked the Secretary of State for War what he intends doing in connection with Major-General Sir Percy Laurie, who was convicted at the Bow Street police court on Saturday, 3rd April?
In accordance with King's Regulations, this officer was suspended from his appointment when the summons was served upon him relating to the charges on which he was convicted. He may exercise his right of appeal against the conviction; and meanwhile it would clearly be improper for my right hon. Friend to make any statement of his intentions.
May I take it that we shall have a report, when this gentleman makes an appeal?
That will depend upon whether an hon. Member puts down a Question.
