HC Deb 19 February 1901 vol 89 c467
GENERAL LAURIE (Pembroke and Haverfordwest)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been officially called to the action of the Corporation of Guildford; in refusing to permit the employment of Reservists in the borough fire department; and whether any other locality can be selected as a suitable headquarters for the Queen's Royal West Surrey Regimental District in the stead of a town of which the municipal representatives act thus towards the men who have served their country.


My attention was not called to this matter officially, but privately. I understand that the corporation has since withdrawn the refusal.
