HC Deb 08 August 1918 vol 109 cc1567-8W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the two months' Volunteers, after they have finished their training, will be allowed to return to their former positions or retained in their military service; and if they in any way as men of the ages forty-five to fifty forfeit their rights to military tribunals and grading to consider their capabilities for service?


In reply to the first part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave on Thursday last to my hon. Friend the Member for South-West Manchester. With regard to the second part, as it has been repeatedly stated, the position of Volunteers serving with Special Service Companies will be in no way prejudiced thereby in any subsequent consideration of their cases by tribunals. Instructions to this effect have been issued to all concerned.
