HC Deb 02 July 1907 vol 177 cc521-2
MR. CLAUDE HAY (Shoreditch, Hoxton)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in considering any future discharges of men in the Ordnance Factory at Woolwich, he will have special regard to the number of women and children dependent on the men it is proposed to discharge.


As I have already informed the hon. Member on the 26th ultimo, in Answer to a somewhat similar Question, every regard is paid, when selecting men for discharge, to all the circumstances of each man's case, including any points concerning his family he may put forward.
