HC Deb 28 July 1919 vol 118 c1828W

asked the Secretary of State for War if there are many soldiers stationed at Gibraltar who have served without leave for from two to three years; and if he can see his way to relieve those of these men who have urgent reason for resuming civil life?


Instructions have already been issued that all demobilisable soldiers are to be released by certain de finite dates according to their class, as mentioned in my recent statement on demobilisation published on the 17th instant, and soldiers serving at Gibraltar will be dealt with accordingly. I cannot at pre sent add to the classes of men whose re lease has already been arranged.
