Mr. Dugdale:

Yes, Sir. The House will be interested to learn of the very satisfactory result of this scheme. Out of 667 applications received, 569 have been assessed as eligible. Transfer from Continuous Service to Special Service engagement has already been authorised in 526 of the eligible cases and instructions are in course of issue for the transfer of the remaining 43 applicants. The scheme is now closed, except for the consideration of borderline cases.
