The reasons and process for discharge of enlisted personnel from the Permanent Defence Force are governed by Defence Force Regulations and this is reflected in the manner data is collated by the military authorities. The specific information requested by the Deputy is not maintained in a readily available format. The task of accessing this information is not possible in the timeframe given. The military authorities are working on the request.

I will revert to the Deputy with a response as soon as possible.
