HC Deb 14 March 1922 vol 151 cc1943-4
25. Major M'LEAN

asked the Secretary of State for War what inducements, if any, will be offered to officers to retire, in view of the proposed large reduction in establishments; and, in cases of compulsory retirement, how these officers will be selected?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply which I gave on the same subject on 8th March to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for East Fife. As I then stated, I cannot deal with the subject within the limits of a Parliamentary Answer, but I propose to do so in the course of my statement on Army Estimates to-morrow.
