§ Mr. POLLOCK
asked whether it has been decided that special constables, who are also Volunteers, must elect to which service they will continue to belong; if so, what is the ground for this decision; and whether it will be possible to allow those whose circumstances permit them to. fulfil both duties to continue to do so?
I would refer the hon. and learned Member to the reply which the Under-Secretary of State for War gave to the hon. Member for North-East Bethnal Green, on the 22nd June. No such decision has been given as is suggested in the question; but the whole matter is under the consideration of the War Office. I am anxious that it should be settled as soon as possible.
