HC Deb 23 December 1915 vol 77 cc597-8
49. Sir H. CRAIK

asked the Prime Minister whether the obligation to answer the recruiting call rests upon all Civil servants of military age alike, or whether an exception is made in favour of those who have received unusually early promotion; and if this exceptionally early promotion is also to entitle these young men to exemption from the obligation resting upon their less-favoured colleagues?


Civil servants have been invited to attest, and will be released for military service if and when the heads of their departments find it possible to spare them. I need hardly add that no such discrimination as is suggested by the hon. Member will be exercised.
