HC Deb 26 June 1919 vol 117 c355W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, following the signing of Peace, he will endeavour to facilitate the demobilisation of those who are the owners of one-man businesses, many of whom are suffering particular hardship by being retained with the Colours?

Captain GUEST

I regret that at present I can add nothing to the statement made by my right hon. Friend during the Debate on the Army Estimates on the 29th May to the effect that he is considering whether compassionate cases on other than purely family grounds cannot now come into consideration, at any rate for a limited number.
