§ SIR JOHN LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in bringing back the troops from South Africa, care will be taken to liberate as early as possible those Reservists whose employers have for nearly three years assisted to maintain their wives and families; and whether the Reservists in this country, at Aldershot or elsewhere, will be at once discharged.† See (4) Debates, cvii., 1348.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Lord STANLEY,) Lancashire, Westhoughton
The arrangements for demobilisation are being carefully considered, and will be carried out with all possible speed; but I do not think that it would be either practicable or expedient to attempt to make the suggested distinctions among the men due for return home. Reservists at home will be demobilised after the 30th June
