16. Mr. TREVELYAN THOMSON
asked the Secretary of State for War how soon the suspension of a soldier's right to purchase his discharge will be removed; and will he see that when this takes place, in cases where the time within which such claims should have been made has expired owing to this suspension, the soldier's right is not prejudiced thereby?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
Purchase of discharge from the Army will be re-opened as from the 30th April, by which date the last conscript will have been released from the Army. The soldier's right to 1463 purchase his discharge under paragraph 392 (v) of the King's Regulations will not be prejudiced if he has given the requisite notice.
§ Colonel ASHLEY
Could the right hon. Gentleman say whether the scale of charges is the same as pre-war?
