HC Deb 22 December 1916 vol 88 cc1835-6W
Mr. PERCY HARRIS (Paddington, S.)

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that men are sometimes called up for military service and then sent back to their homes with instructions to report at a later data; whether in such circumstances the men are not entitled to military pay nor their wives to separation allowances although the men may have lost their civil employment; and, if so, whether he will issue such instructions as will prevent the continuance of this hardship?


I am afraid that the terms of the question are rather general. I suggest to my hon. Friend that he should give me some specific instances, and I will have inquiries made.
