King's Regulations provide that a soldier may, at the discretion of the competent military authority, be discharged on the grounds that his services are no longer required. In view of the hon. Member's Question, I have looked into this particular case and am satisfied from the confidential information available that the military authorities concerned were justified in their action.
Is my right hon. Friend aware that this is only one of something like a dozen cases where there are strong reasons for suspecting political prejudice to the disadvantage of men who served in the Spanish Civil War?
