HC Deb 11 August 1919 vol 119 cc902-3W

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he is aware that certain women who enlisted for war service in the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps or similar organisations controlled by the Admiralty or War Office are being retained and refused demobilisation, although they have employment waiting for them and desire to be released; and what steps the Government propose to take to remedy this state of affairs?


I have been in communication with the Departments concerned, and I am informed that, as a general rule, no objection is raised to the demobilisation of any member of the forces referred to who desires release in order to take up civil employment. If my hon. and gallant Friend will furnish particulars of any case he has in mind to the Departments concerned inquiry will be made.
