§ 92. Mr. Chetwynd
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what conditions are attached to the grant of requests for discharge by purchase from the Royal Navy.
§ Commander Noble
Men are required to produce a "good and substantial reason" for wishing to purchase their discharge. If this is of a compassionate nature, immediate discharge is normally granted. If the reason is not of a compassionate nature, priority of release is determined by length of service in each class of engagement.
