§ 88. Mr. Conway
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what action he takes to prevent those known to have been mercenary soldiers enlisting in regular or territorial forces.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
There is no specific bar to prevent anyone who has served as a mercenary from enlisting into the regular or reserve forces. Information about an applicant's service as a mercenary should normally be revealed during the selection process and each would be considered on its own merits.
