HC Deb 26 July 1950 vol 478 c76W
127. Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether it is still proposed to dispense in the near future with the services of a large number of extended service commission officers; and whether, in view of the present threat to world peace, these officers will now be retained in His Majesty's service.

Mr. Callaghan

There is no present intention to depart, except possibly in a few special instances, from the arrangements in hand for the normal release of these officers as their service engagements permit, but the requirements of naval officers will continue to be under constant review.
