HC Deb 17 February 1920 vol 125 cc691-2

asked the Secretary of State for War if his attention has been called to cases of officers and men who have been abroad in Aden, India, &c, for 5½ years, but having been transferred to the Indian Army make fruitless efforts to secure release from the Army; and what steps he proposes to take to do justice to men in this position?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Herbert Fisher)

The number of officers holding temporary commissions in the Indian Army, to which class it is assumed my hon. Friend is referring, who are still detained is now very small, and it is probable that they will soon be released.
