§ Mr. NUTTALL
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether men who voluntarily enlisted in the Army, and agreed to serve for the duration of the War or a maximum term of three years, will be released at the end of three years; and, if the conditions at that time will not permit of their discharge, will the War Office (in view of the fact that these men expect such a privilege) grant them a month's leave, as given to Regular soldiers who extend their period of service?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
My hon. Friend is under a misapprehension in thinking that there were authorised enlistments for a maximum period of three years. The terms were three years or the duration of the Weir. The last part of the question does not therefore arise.
