§ Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
asked the Secretary of State for War whether any distinction on demobilisation is made with regard to the amount of furlough and allowances between those men who have received their regular leave during the War and those who have been out of the country for three or four years at a stretch without any leave at all; and, if there is no difference, whether some provision can be made to deal more fairly with the latter class?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
No distinction on demobilisation is made with regard to the amount of furlough and allowances, the grant of these being governed by conditions laid down in Demobilisation Regulations. Careful consideration has been given to the question of the granting of additional furlough to soldiers who have been abroad for two or more years with out home leave, but I regret it has not been found possible to grant any additional furlough in these cases.
