HC Deb 06 December 1934 vol 295 cc1828-9
67. Captain FULLER

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office what is the earliest date on which officers of the regular Army will be allowed to retire under the recent scheme, in view of the establishment of an officers' employment bureau which is to open on 17th December?


Retirements on the special terms now being offered to infantry officers will not take place until early in April, 1935.

Captain FULLER

Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that there are a number of officers affected by this scheme who cannot take it up because of this uncertainty; and could he not have an early examination of the case of those officers?


Much as I should like to do so, I think it would be impossible.
