Yes, Sir. Personnel of the Army, including members of the Auxiliary Territorial Service, proceeding on leave at the public expense, are issued with free travelling warrants to any destination they choose in the United Kingdom. If visiting relatives or in the case of urgent private business, free warrants are also issued to destinations in Southern Ireland.
Is the information which the hon. Gentleman has just given to the House contained in any Army Council Instruction, or other means of communicating such information to units, because it is not generally known?
