§ Commander Pursey
asked the Secretary of State for Defence why the commanding officer of a Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers soldier in Germany, who three months ago paid £150 to the Regimental Pay Officer, Nottingham, failed to forward the application for discharge by purchase; why the wrong forms were used; and why the man has been posted to another unit instead of being discharged to take up a job in Australia.
§ Mr. Richard
I am investigating the matter urgently. My researches are not yet complete and I will write to my hon. and gallant Friend in the next few days.
