HC Deb 17 June 1886 vol 306 c1713
DR. M'DONALD (Ross and Cromarty)

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether he is aware that men belonging to the Naval Reserve are prevented from joining the Army, owing to their being obliged to repay "a sum equivalent to the amount they have received as drill pay and retainers" before being allowed to do so; and, whether he is prepared to give Naval Reserve men the same facilities for joining the Army as is given to them by Regulation 212 to join the Navy, in which Regulation the payment of above-mentioned sums is waived?


The attention of the Admiralty has been drawn to the subject of the Question of the hon. Member, and it is at present receiving careful consideration.
