§ 5. Major Legge-Bourke
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many officers and men are on indefinite release.
On 30th November, the latest date for which figures are available, the number was 18,700.
I should have to have notice of that question, but I would point out that the figure includes all the compassionate releases as well as those who are for the time being awaiting appointments.
§ Major Legge-Bourke
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether he is satisfied that the ones who were released during the war are fully aware of their rights to claim postwar credits and gratuities at once?
So far as I know they have all had their chance of seeing these orders, but if the hon. and gallant Member has any case in mind I shall be glad to look into it.
