Mr Don­ald Maclean, MP, gave ev­i­dence be­fore the Se­lect Com­mit­tee which is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the con­duct of the re-ex­am­i­na­tion of dis­charged sol­diers and of re­jected men. It was ob­vi­ous, he said, there must be thou­sands of men in the army who should never have been there, and a fact show­ing the ur­gency of such an in­quiry, so far as Lon­don was con­cerned, was that they were get­ting very near the bone in re­spect of re­cruitable men in any de­gree of phys­i­cal fit­ness.
