§ Major Nield
asked the Secretary of State for War if men of the Royal Corps of Signals serving in S.E.A.C. are being repatriated after the same period of service as other corps; and, if not, why not.
§ Sir J. Grigg
The tour of overseas duty for officers and men of the Royal Corps of Signals is the same as that for any other corps. But in an area of active operations it may be necessary from time to time—as I mentioned in my statement in the Debate on 8th June—to postpone the repatriation of individual specialists in order not to impair the efficiency of the Forces facing the enemy.
