HC Deb 06 May 1915 vol 71 c1256
50. Mr. TURTON

asked the Prime Minister whether he is prepared to bring in a Bill empowering and directing county councils and municipal corporations, acting through selected committees, forthwith to take a census and investigate all cases of unmarried men between the ages of eighteen and thirty-five within their respective areas, in order that they may furnish the War Office with the names of those men who, in their judgment, are deemed to be available for the service of their country, discriminating between those who can be called upon to serve in some military capacity or in industrial work?


I am not aware that a case has been made out for a compulsory return.
