HC Deb 13 December 1950 vol 482 cc1283-4

Lords Amendment: In page 3, line 20, at end, insert: (3) Where any person serving whole-time as a commissioned officer under any such arrangements as aforesaid has undertaken, with a view to service in Korea, to serve whole-time as a commissioned officer for a further period not exceeding twelve months immediately after the time when his service under the said arrangements would have ended, any further period of such service in pursuance of that undertaking shall be deemed, for the purposes of subsection (1) or, as the case may be, subsection (2) of this section, to be comprised in his period of whole-time service under the said arrangements.

Mr. Lee

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

This Amendment is in line with the principle contained in the earlier Amendment conferring reinstatement rights on other ranks undertaking service in Korea. It includes National Service men who obtained commissions, and certain professional men, such as doctors and dentists.

Question put, and agreed to.
