HC Deb 06 July 1900 vol 85 c782
MR. WEIR (ROSS and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that members of the London Scottish Volunteers who are employed at the Central Telegraph Office, London, have been refused leave of absence to attend camps of military instruction; and will he have inquiry made into the matter with a view to a short term of leave being granted.


Every effort is made to enable officers of the Post Office who are Volunteers to attend camps of instruction this year; but owing to the large number of officers who have been withdrawn for service in South Africa, it is not possible, with due regard to the exigencies of the service, to allow more than a limited number to go.
