HC Deb 01 May 1919 vol 115 cc353-4W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, according to the latest order, no soldier who is attached to a Non-Combatant Corps is to be demobilised except on compassionate grounds, although on grounds of age or length of service he is demobilisable under the order of the 29th January last; and, if so, will be state the reasons for this differentiation?


I presume my hon. Friend is referring to soldiers belonging to administrative services such as the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, Royal Army Medical Corps, and Army Pay Department. The rules governing demobilisation apply to all corps alike.
