§ Mr. Lawson:
Men who have been released may re-enlist on a Regular engagement for five years with the Colours and seven years with the Reserve provided they are under 30 years of age and of appropriate medical category. Men re-enlisting on Regular engagements within a year of release will be re-granted their substantive or war substantive ranks. The general conditions are given in the pamphlet entitled "Why drop out" of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy. I would also refer my hon. Friend 415W to the statement on short term engagements made by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister yesterday.
