§ Mr. BROOKES
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, in view of their long services, volunteers who are also members of the special constabulary are to be allowed to choose which of the two forces they will continue to serve in should the claims on their time as volunteers render it impossible for them to disharge both sets of duties?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
If a volunteer, who is also a special constable, finds that he is unable to discharge both sets of duties satisfactorily, it is open to him (unless he has joined Sections A or B of the Volunteer Force) to quit his corps on giving fourteen days' notice. I have no information as to the conditions under which a special constable may be relieved of his engagement.
