36. Mr. CHANCELLOR
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether attested persons in reserved occupations who were unaware when presenting themselves that it was necessary, as stated in the Local Government Board circular to local tribunals R 18, to inform the recruiting officer will be allowed to appeal?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY Of STATE for WAR (Mr. Tennant)
If such a man receives a notice calling him up for service he should at once see his employer, who should forward the notice forthwith to the recruiting officer who has issued it, together with a certificate signed by the employer stating the precise occupation in which the man is actually engaged, and the name, address, and business of the firm by which he is employed. On receipt of these particulars the recruiting officer will provisionally cancel the notice calling up the man, and if, on investigation, it is found that the statements made 448 by the employer are correct, a mark will be placed in the Army register against the name of the man.
