§ 65. Mr. RAMSDEN
asked the Secretary of State for War what steps he is taking to grant commissions in the Regular Army to those Special Reserve officers who have been recommended for this honour, or whether they will be demobilised this month and their war experience thus lost to the nation?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
As was stated yesterday in a written reply to the hon. Member for Devonport, the demobilisation of an officer of the Special Reserve will not affect his being considered for a commission in the Regular Army. As regards the grant of permanent commissions generally to Special Reserve and other officers, I would refer my hon. Friend to the full statement which 1 made on the 27th 1318 October in reply to a written question by the hon. and gallant Member for Abingdon.
