To hear a Member of this House say in cold blood that a corporal who has taken two gallons of petrol is punished so severely, and a commissioned officer who commits a worst offence gets off by being told that he must not do it again, is scandalous, and I hope it is not true. If it is true, the Secretary of State has something to answer for, but in the interests of the Army I hope it is not true.
