I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for War whether as some doubt exists as to the position of those members of the National Reserve engaged in the Civil Service can the right hon. Gentleman say what are the conditions under which they would serve? Is it true that the men will lose the whole of their civil pay instead of being paid half in the case of the Army and Navy Services?

Notice of the hon. Gentleman's question only reached me when I came down to the House, and I have not been able to make all the inquiries I should like. The matter is still under the consideration of the authorities, and a full statement will be made by the Prime Minister in a few days dealing with this subject and all others germane to it.
