§ Lieut.-Colonel MURROUGH WILSON
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Farrier-Sergeant J. Plews, No. 252478, 528th Company. Royal Army Service Corps, Highland Divisional Train, enlisted in 1914 and is now refused release on the grounds that the orders relating to the demobilisation of 1914 men do not apply to artificers; and whether he will give instructions for his immediate released
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I am informed that the divisional train in which this non-commissioned officer is serving is due to arrive in England in the course of a few days, and orders have been issued that all the demobilisable men are to be released. If Sergeant Plews' length of service is as stated by my hon. and gallant Friend, he will be demobilised accordingly. There are no reservations to the orders for release of 1914 men.
