HC Deb 27 November 1950 vol 481 c118W
Mr. Baker White

asked the Secretary of State for War how long his Regulations allow a Reservist recalled to the Colours to be held after his period of service has expired.

Mr. Strachey

Under the Military and Air Forces (Prolongation of Service) Act, 1939, the term of service of a soldier is deemed not to expire until the emergency that was the occasion of the passing of the Act is declared to be ended by Order in Council.
