§ 3. Mr. RENDALL
asked the Under-Secretary for War whether Form 624, dealing with the compulsory transfer of men from one battalion to another, has been or will be withdrawn; and whether he will now take steps to remove the injustice which has been done to many men by the compulsory transfer from the Royal Army Medical Corps to fighting units, in view of the fact that many men joined the Royal Army Medical Corps for 734 the sole purpose of helping sick and wounded men at the front?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY Of STATE for WAR (Mr. Tennant)
As I stated yesterday, instructions have been issued that it will be no longer necessary for members of the Territorial Force undertaking Imperial service obligation to also agree to liability to be transferred to another corps. The transfers referred to in the latter part of the question are apparently those of Regular soldiers. It it not proposed to reconsider them.
