HC Deb 13 March 1918 vol 104 cc302-3
21. Mr. WATT

asked the Undersecretary of State for War whether his Department can grant any concession in the way of service at home or otherwise to those members of the Territorial Force who desire such who mobilised in August, 1914, and who have been, during the whole currency of the War, engaged on active service, in view of the fact that these men had to leave their homes and businesses without convenient preparation, and that there are many men in khaki willing and desirous of serving on the various fronts who could take their place?


Endeavours are being made to allow such men a period of home service, but I regret that in the present situation as regards man-power the opportunities are limited.
