§ Mr. Benson
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the members of companies of Local Defence Volunteers are being asked to subscribe funds to meet the administration costs of the district commands, including office rents, telephone charges, lighting, stationery, postage, etc.; and whether he will take steps to see that the necessary costs of local defence are borne out of national funds?
§ Mr. Denman
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the widow and dependants of an officer who has joined the Local Defence Volunteers and been killed in the course of his duties with that body will lose any service pension rights they would otherwise have enjoyed?
