HC Deb 14 September 1914 vol 66 cc764-5
31. Mr. HUNT

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he can say whether, in the case of an ex-corporal of the transport branch of the Army Service Corps, anxious to rejoin the Army, now employed in the Supreme Court of Judicature in a subordinate position as a piece-worker (typist) if he rejoined the Army, enough (typist) pay would be allowed to make up with military pay the amount ordinarily earned as typist, and if the place would be kept open till the end of the War?


The answer is in the affirmative.


Is the hon. Member aware that there are a great many men in the Supreme Court of Judicature and the Royal Courts of Justice who are very anxious to join the Army on these conditions if he will let his answer be known?


The terms in regard to members of the Civil Service have already been published, and the question of the hon. Member will make it further known that they will not lose anything by joining the Colours.
