HC Deb 24 February 1919 vol 112 c1407W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether there is any necessity at the present time for maintaining agricultural companies; and whether the time has come for permitting men formerly engaged in other industries to leave the Army, where they are doing no military duties but only agricultural work, and to return to their former occupations?

Captain GUEST

Men in Agricultural Companies are being demobilised in accordance with the provisions of the recent Army Orders providing for the Armies of Occupation, and are not being retained longer than necessary.
