HC Deb 06 July 1916 vol 83 c1663
83. Mr. WATT

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether his Department has made any arrangement whereby time-expired soldiers, who under the last Military Service Act, will be required to re-enlist, will be given posts as drill instructors or in the Army Pay Corps where they have the necessary training; and, if so, will he say how these men are expected to set about applying for such posts?


I will send my hon. Friend a copy of the Instructions on this point, which are too voluminous to be read out in this House and possibly not of sufficient general interest.

72. Mr. WING

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if on re-enlistment time-expired men are entitled to a bounty; and, if so, what; and whether they are also entitled to a month's furlough in addition to the same rank as on retirement?


I would refe6r my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for Brentford on the 27th June as regards bounty and furlough. As regards rank these men will be given the substantive rank which they held on discharge.
