HC Deb 08 March 1900 vol 80 c381
CAPTAIN NORTON (Newington, W.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he can state whether the regulations permit a Militiaman to purchase his discharge for the sum of £1, and then, presuming he is otherwise eligible, to join a Royal Reserve battalion, which renders him liable for one year's home service only, and obtain for that year's service the sum of £22 in addition to his daily pay.


All discharges by purchase from Militia units, whether embodied or not, have been suspended until further orders.
