§ Mr. F. C. THOMSON
asked the Secretary of State for War why service in Section A of the Army Reserve does not count as qualifying service for service pension; and whether he is aware that this is a hardship to many old soldiers 910W who rejoined the Colours on the outbreak of the War, and who are thereby deprived of service pensions?
§ Mr. FORSTER
I am not sure that my hon. Friend correctly understands the Regulations. Service in Section A counts as qualifying service if the soldier is mobilised from that section. Perhaps he will give me further particulars of the case he has in view.
