§ 41 and 42. Major Nield
asked the Secretary of State for War (1) if he will consider permitting regular soldiers who were enlisted before 1925 and have served for a substantial period of time overseas in this war to elect to be posted to home establishment;
(2) after what period of service overseas in this war regular soldiers, who have served overseas before this war, may claim to be posted to a home establishment.
Sir J. Griģģ
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given by the Prime Minister on 22nd February to my hon. Friend the Member for Leigh (Mr. Tinker). Regular soldiers are in this respect subject to the same rules as the rest of the Army.
