HC Deb 13 March 1924 vol 170 cc2567-8W

asked the Secretary of State for War if it is his policy to adhere to paragraph 11 of the National Reserve Regulations, 1913; and, if so, will he submit the claim of reservists to the Law Officers of the Crown, in view of the feeling that Army Order 325 of 1919 does not cancel the aforesaid Regulation?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for Devonport (Major Hore-Belisha) on 26th February, from which it will be seen that there is no intention of excluding from the benefit of paragraph 11 any man who re-enlisted whilst it was still in force, and who would benefit by being dealt with under it rather than under later Regulations. As regards the last part of the question, I will consider the matter further.
