The instruction to which my hon. Friend refers is not confined to civilian employees of the War Department, but applies to civilian employees of Government Departments generally. I hope that other public bodies and private employers who have in their employ civilians, salaried or otherwise, who are members of the Home Guard, will also do their best to see that their salaries or wages continue unaffected, at any rate for a period, after mustering. For those who do lose wages owing to being mustered with the Home Guard, compensation will be admissible within certain limits.
