HC Deb 14 August 1919 vol 119 cc1654-5W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the Officer Commanding General Headquarters, Great Britain, Signal Company has informed all the men under his command that they can volunteer for further service without permission from the Postmaster-General, and that their civil pay will not be affected; and whether his statement is in accordance with the published Civil Service Regulations?

A question in similar terms stood upon the Order Paper in the name of Mr. R. RICHARDSON.


As notified in Army Council Instruction No. 242 of 1919, dated 7th April last, Post Office Civil servants serving with signal units may volunteer for further service without obtaining the permission of the head of their Department. Any question relating to their civil pay or the Civil Service Regulations applicable to them should be addressed to my right hon. Friend the Postmaster-General.
