HC Deb 20 December 1938 vol 342 cc2710-1W
Mr. Errington

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that on the conversion of units to anti-aircraft purposes officers on the Territorial Reserve were informed that they could transfer to the general reserve or retire; and why such officers were not given the option of continued attachment to the re-equipped unit?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

The instruction is in the contrary sense. It is headed "Disposal of personnel not wishing to serve in their unit after re-equipment" and contains information for those to whom this applies. If my hon. Friend knows of any cases in which the instructions were misinterpreted, I should be glad if he will send me particulars.
