HC Deb 19 July 1916 vol 84 c995

asked if a Territorial whose time expired in June, 1915, who has been on active service since the outbreak of the War, is now stationed in Egypt, who has had no furlough since he was called to the Colours twenty-two months ago, and who by the passing of the Military Service Act has been deprived of the expectation of release in June, 1916, is entitled to a furlough; and if instructions will be given that the furlough shall be granted in such circumstances?


Instructions have been issued for the granting of a month's furlough in such cases—provided the exigencies of the Service will allow and that accommodation on ships is available.
