The personnel of the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes are not Government employés and consequently the Clause in the Irish Treaty to which my Noble Friend refers is not applicable. The question of the position of the employés of the organisation is purely a domestic one affecting the Board of Management and is not one in which the War Office can intervene. I understand, however, that the Board are making arrangements to compensate according to length of service those employés whose services will not be required after the South Irish regiments have been disbanded.
