§ Sir PHILIP PILDITCH
asked the Secretary of State for War whether Red Cross men who have served during the War under military discipline are to be recognised on demobilisation as ex-Ser- 420W vice men or discharged civilians, which is an important point to men when applying for employment?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The men referred to are under the direct control of the Joint War Committee of the British Red Cross Society and Order of St. John of Jerusalem. Their release is arranged for by this Committee, and on being released their status is that of civilians who have ceased to be employed.
