HC Deb 05 November 1919 vol 120 c1515W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Private H. Jones, No. 39624, 1/4th Northants, Egyptian Expeditionary Force, Egypt, attested in June, 1916; that he has had no leave for twenty-three months and has been transferred to another regiment without his consent; and if he will take steps to secure this man's release as being eligible under Lord Derby's scheme?


The instructions at present in force provide for the release of all men who attested under Lord Derby's scheme to be completed by 1st February, 1920, if transport is available.
