§ Captain KINCAID-SMITH
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the regulations have been cancelled under which cavalry officers with 10 years' service were permitted to retire on temporary retired pay of £100 a year for 10 years if joining the Yeomanry; and, if so, whether they will be permitted to join the supernumerary list of some Regular cavalry regiment at Home and do the annual training, as the Special Reserve are required to do?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Haldane)
The regulation in question was amended by Army Order 61 of last March. Service in the Territorial Yeomanry no longer qualifies an officer to draw temporary retired pay. The question of allowing him to qualify by service on the supplementary list is under consideration.
§ Mr. HALDANE
No; the officers who retire and receive retired pay are ipso facto under an obligation to serve in the reserve of officers.
