§ 7. Mr. HURD
asked the Secretary of State for War if he can now state the result of his inquiries into the allegation of soldiers in the Army of Occupation that mechanical transport men in the Royal 8 Army Medical Corps are not being released fairly according to length of service, etc., under the terms of the Government scheme of demobilisation; whether men are being retained solely because their unit is in general headquarters troops; whether men from other mechanical transport units are being demobilised with less service than men in such general headquarters units; an[...]what steps he proposes to take?
The General Officer Commanding-in-Chief the Army of the Rhine has been asked to inquire into this matter and report whether there is any basis for the allegations to which my hon. Friend alludes. A reply has not yet been received.
