§ Lieut.-Colonel NALL
asked the Secretary of State for War how many officers not below the rank of lieutenant-colonel are now eligible for retirement on full pension; and how many now employed had previously retired but resumed duty for war service?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
The information asked for in the first part of the question cannot be given without a laborious investigation, which I should be very reluctant to impose upon my Department at the present time. In regard to the second part, the number is four. This is exclusive of certain retired officers employed as such in the Remount, Recruiting, Records and Barrack Services.
