HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 c1454
39. Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that, under the Military Service Act of May, 1916, men could claim their discharge if they had thirteen years' service to their credit and had reached the age limit of forty-one under that Act, he will now extend a similar concession to men who have reached the age of fifty-one and have also thirteen years' service to their credit?


I regret that in existing circumstances it is not possible to adopt my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion. The question suggests an amendment to the Military Service (No. 2) Act, 1918, and should, therefore, be addressed to the Minister of National Service.
