HC Deb 04 August 1919 vol 119 c43W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether men who attested under the Derby scheme will be regarded as having a prior claim to release over those men of the same age who were called up under the Military Service Acts; and whether he will say how soon he hopes to be able to make his promised statement?

Captain GUEST

I would refer my hon. Friend to the Memorandum published on 17th July, which explains how we hope to release men who enlisted under the Derby scheme.
