§ 73. Mr. BROOKES
asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of their services, members of the Volunteer Force have, so far as the special constabulary are concerned, the right of choosing whether to remain with the volunteers or in the special constabulary, should the joint duties become too obvious?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir G. Cave)
A special constable may resign his office with the consent of the chief officer of police. I have no doubt that by arrangement between the military and police authorities consent would be given in proper cases.
