HC Deb 13 May 1941 vol 371 cc1089-90W
Mr. Bellenger

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the position of reservists called up whose term of engagement expires during the war; and are they entitled to any gratuity or extra pay by reason of being retained in the Army?

Captain Margesson

Under the Military and Air Forces (Prolongation of Service) Act, 1939, the term of service of members of the Regular Army, the Army Reserve and the Territorial Army is deemed not to expire until the end of the emergency. Reservists retained with the colours under the provisions of this Act are not entitled to any special gratuity or extra pay.
