§ 31. Mr. CAIRNS
asked the Minister of Labour if members of His Majesty's Forces who were certified by the Ministry of Labour as contract men prior to 1st February, 1919, are eligible for demoblisation under the new Army Council Instructions?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Forster)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Henley on the 9th instant, in which it was pointed out that slip men are not affected by the recent Army Order unless they are eligible for demobilisation under Army Order 55—i.e., on the ground of length of service, age, or wound stripes, etc.
