§ MR. ASHLEY (Lancashire, Blackpool)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he will state the employments in civil life the holding of which is held to prevent a member of the first-class Army Reserve from being permitted to extend his service in the Reserve to complete twenty-one years of Army service.
§ MR. HALDANE
It is not clear from the Question what information the hon. Member desires to obtain. If, however, he is alluding to re-engagements in Section I), he will find in paragraph 18 of the Army Reserve Regulations, a list of the classes of men who are permitted to re-engage therein for a second or further term of service up to the age of fifty. No one, however, is permitted to extend his service in the Reserve to complete twenty-one years Army service, Reserve service not counting as Array service.
