§ Major M'LEAN
asked the Secretary of State for War how he intends to select officers for retirement, owing to the large reduction of our fighting forces; when the scheme for retirement will be published: and if regular officers will be given an opportunity to join the Palestine gendarmerie and Colonial services?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
In regard to the first part of the question, I can add nothing at present to my previous statements. I cannot name a date for publication of the scheme. It will be published as soon as possible. The last part of the question should be addressed to my right hon. Friend the Colonial Secretary.
