HC Deb 08 June 1915 vol 72 c179
45. General Sir IVOR HERBERT

asked the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of difficulties that have arisen through the withdrawal of skilled workmen from certain industries, he has considered the advisability of taking measures for the compulsory registration of the male population of the Kingdom with a view to the employment of such men in the most effective manner for the energetic prosecution of the War?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

This question is receiving the careful consideration of the Government.


I will put another question to the right hon. Gentleman on this point early next week.
