HC Deb 14 August 1919 vol 119 c1647W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will consider the demobilisation of men who have work to go to at once and may have joined up late rather than the demobilisation of other men who have no work to return to?


The release of all men is dependent upon whether or not they are eligible under the Regulations governing demobilisation, and I regret that I cannot authorise the release of others, to the prejudice of men of long service, and those who have been repeatedly wounded, or who are over the stipulated age.
