§ 79. Mr. E. BROWN
asked the Secretary of State for War the conditions of service under which the pre-War pensioner was enrolled; and if he was liable to service up to 50 years of age?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Major Attlee)
Pre-War pensioners as such were not enrolled, but the Regulations laid down that they were liable to service in emergency up to 50 years of age. This liability, however, was not enforced, since on an examination of 2203 the matter shortly before the outbreak of the Great War, it transpired that the legality of the Regulations on this point was doubtful. The Regulations have now been altered and do not purport to make pensioners liable for service.
