Written answers (Question to Defence)

When an enlisted member of the Defence Forces seeks to transfer from one service corps to another the consent of the Formation Commanders in both areas must be obtained. The transfer will proceed if both Formation Commanders give consent but will not take place if both do not consent. Where there is disagreement between the two, the application is passed to the Deputy Chief of Staff (Support) for final decision.

The transfer request referred to by the Deputy is subject to the above procedure and is still under consideration by the military authorities.
