HC Deb 04 July 1918 vol 107 c1872W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been called to the fact that special constables of the new military age who have performed their duties satisfactorily are exempted under certain conditions from military service; and whether he will extend the same privilege to special constables of similar service in Glasgow and other large Scottish towns?


The answer to the first part of the question, which I presumer refers to the arrangements in London, is in the affirmative. In regard to special constables in Scotland, I am in communication with the Ministry of National Service, but, as indicated in the reply given on the 1st instant by the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of National Service to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for East Bristol, the arrangements made in London are of a special character.
