HC Deb 17 October 1944 vol 403 cc2217-8W
Mr. Bowles

asked the Minister of Labour whether the service of men who went out of the Army on to W. (T) Reserve to assist the A.F.S. in 1940 can be aggregated for the purpose of demobilisation.

Mr. Tomlinson

This question is under examination and a final decision has not yet been reached.

Colonel Greenwell

asked the Secretary of State for War if the Government's proposals for demobilisation will permit of officers who are serving on permanent Regular commissions resigning their commissions, should they so desire, and being demobilised in accordance with the scheme.

Sir J. Grigg

Serving Regular officers are not subject to release as such, but applications from such officers to retire or resign their commissions will be considered on their merits according to the exigencies of the Service.
