HC Deb 18 August 1919 vol 119 c1938W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can now make any announcement regarding the early release of men who, on presenting themselves for military service in 1914–15, were rejected as medically unfit and who later were also rejected under the Derby Scheme, but were subsequently taken into the Service under the Military Service Acts?


As I stated on the 29th July, in reply to a question by the hon. and gallant Member for Farnworth (Captain Bagley), I regret that, after careful consideration, I am unable to include the men referred to in the scheme adopted for the release of men who attested under the Derby Scheme, and I can make no statement regarding the demobilisation of men whose release is not provided for in the Memorandum recently published.
