§ 103. Mr. JOYNSON—HICKS
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that many of the special constabularies have been considerably depleted lately, and that the new order preventing special constables from being members of the Volunteers will deplete them still more; and whether he can see his way to allow men who are willing to do so to remain members of both bodies?
§ Mr. FORSTER
I cannot state to-day that men will be allowed to remain special constables and also Volunteers, but I can inform my hon. Friend that a recommendation to that effect is before, and is being considered by, the Army Council.
