§ Mr. MACQUISTEN
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the whole or any part of paragraph 1,320 of the King s Regulations has been cancelled or amended; and whether an officer, noncommissioned officer, or man who has just completed fifteen months' continuous service on the West Coast of Africa, and who is eligible for dispersal, may be discharged without furlough or payment in lieu?
Neither the whole nor any part of paragraph 1,320 of the King's Regulations has been cancelled or amended. All ranks who, by reason of service on the West Coast of Africa, become eligible for leave under this paragraph are being granted leave before they are actually demobilised. Should any cases, where an individual was demobilised before he received this leave, be brought to the notice of the War Office, steps will be taken to rectify the omission.
