HC Deb 26 June 1919 vol 117 c352W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether time-expired naval men have any priority in the matter of demobilisation; whether lie is aware that there are now many time expired men serving in the Navy who have not been released; and can he see his way to have inquiries made into the matter?


I am sending my hon. Friend an extract from the demobilisation Regulations, from which it will be seen that these men have a distinct priority. My hon. Friend will realise that there must of necessity still remain a proportion of time-expired ratings to be demobilised, particularly as they so often hold non-substantive ratings.
