asked the Secretary of State for war whether he is aware that prisoners of war returning from overseas are being directed to call at the H.Q. of the 25th Infantry Holding Battalion at Leigh-on-Sea despite the fact that this unit moved from Leigh-on-Sea to Congleton, Cheshire, in early May; and whether arrangements can be made to prevent any further fruitless journeys by returned prisoners of war and others to this incorrect address.

I am aware that, owing to a failure to amend the list of locations there have been cases of men reporting to this unit at Leigh-on-Sea. I regret the inconvenience caused. Instructions which I hope will avoid any further complaints concerning this unit have been issued.
