HC Deb 19 March 1919 vol 113 cc2108-9W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether N. Crabtree, No. 296528, A.C. 2, No. 6 Stores Depot, Royal Air Force, Ascot, who was applied for by his employers, the Stanley Motories, Limited, Halifax, on 6th January, 1919, has been recommended for release from the Army; and whether, in view of the great need of taxi-drivers in Halifax, he will now issue instructions for his discharge?

Major-General SEELY

No application for the release of this airman has been received either by the Air Ministry or the War Office. It is not considered that the reason given in the latter part of the ques- tion justifies his release out of his turn, as he does not fulfil the conditions laid down for early demobilisation.
