HC Deb 25 August 1914 vol 66 c17

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the difficulty that is caused to employers by the failure of the Government to enlist men who are in charge of vehicles that are requisitioned, and whether he will arrange that transport officers should be instructed, wherever possible, to enlist such men if suitable and willing to serve?


It has been the policy as far as possible to enlist the drivers of mechanically propelled vehicles impressed for military service, and this policy will be followed in future.
