HC Deb 04 March 1919 vol 113 c188
23. Major NALL

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the definite policy now laid down regarding the demobilisation of students and repatriated prisoners of war, he will recall to the Colours those youths who were demobilised during a period of official uncertainty, and thereby gained an advantage over their comrades abroad?


I regret I cannot entertain my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion to recall to the Colours soldiers already demobilised under regulations for the time being in force. There has been no discrimination in favour of soldiers serving at home.
