HC Deb 05 December 1967 vol 755 c279W
Mr. Hale

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the additional amount to be paid by Fusilier Taylor in respect of his return fare from the station to which he was sent four days before becoming entitled to his discharge.

Mr. Boyden

Under a new regulation soldiers who purchase their discharge while serving in an overseas station will be entitled to return to this country at public expense provided they have completed four years' service on full pay and have also completed one year's service in the overseas station.

When Fusilier Taylor has completed a year's service in his present station he will, if he is allowed to purchase his discharge, come into this category.
