HC Deb 25 November 1914 vol 68 cc1122-3
81. Mr. BOYTON

asked whether London National Reservists are subject to different official conditions than those of the borough of Croydon and of the counties of Berkshire and Essex; and whether the authorities can frame some scheme of registration and organisation whereby the services of a large number of men could be secured and receive official recognition, so that in case of emergency they may be part of the Services of the State?


The National Reserve Regulations apply equally to all National Reservists throughout Great Britain, whether in the City or County of London or the counties of Berkshire and Essex. The majority of National Reservists who undertook the Class I. or II. obligation have already been enlisted into the Regular Army or Territorial Force, and steps are being taken to make use, as opportunities offer, of all those remaining men who have not joined any portion of His Majesty's Forces.
