61. Mr. HINDS
asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in the interests of public economy, soldiers, when sanctioned for dispersal, can be demobilised without the necessity of travelling to their depots.
Soldiers whose demobilisation is sanctioned do not travel to their depots, but are sent to the dispersal station nearest to their homes. It is considered that this arrangement is the best in the interests alike of the soldiers' personal convenience and economy of railway transport.
