HC Deb 30 October 1919 vol 120 c901W

asked the Secretary of State for War when soldiers serving in Mesopotamia will be brought home and demobilised and why soldiers removed from Mesopotamia to India with a view to being brought to England are still retained in India, and when will they be brought back and demobilised?


Orders have been issued that men serving in Mesopotamia are to be sent home, and their despatch is to be completed by the 1st April, 1920, subject to the necessary transport being available. With regard to the latter part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. and gallant Member for Torquay, on Tuesday last.
