HC Deb 01 April 1946 vol 421 c128W
Mr. Hobson

asked the Secretary of State for War why all Royal Signals officers, Group 26, in land forces in Greece have had their release deferred; and for what period.

Mr. Lawson:

It may be necessary for some but not all Royal Signals officers in Group 26 in land forces in Greece to have their release deferred because their retention is essential on military grounds. It is not possible at present to say for how long the release of the officers in question will be deferred, but each individual case is most carefully considered on its merits by the Commander-in-Chief, in order to ensure that no officer is retained longer than is absolutely necessary.
