§ 3. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Secretary of State for War how many men who have not volunteered for further service are still retained in His Majesty's Army, and, if any, when they will be demobilised?
§ 5. Captain REGINALD TERRELL
asked the Secretary of State for War what arrangements have been made to bring home as soon as possible all conscripts who are released at the end of the month; and whether adequate shipping provision has been made in advance?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
There are approximately 24,000 demobilisable soldiers with the units of the Army, of whom about 12,000 have volunteered for further ser vice. The despatch of all demobilisable men from their present stations or theatres for release is still dependent on shipping; but under the arrangements now in force all such men who have not volunteered for further service, with the exception of those at Bermuda, Hong Kong, and other outlying stations, will have left for the United Kingdom by the end of this week, provided that none are retained under treatment in hospital.
