98. Mr. NUGENT
asked whether Mr. Ian Colvin, of the "Morning Post" editorial staff, is of military age; whether he has been exempted from military service; whether that exemption is temporary or absolute; whether he has been exempted on grounds of physical or mental unfitness; and, if not, on what grounds his exemption has been conceded?
§ Mr. FORSTER
I am informed that an application in respect of Mr. Colvin is at present before the Westminster Local Tribunal, and will shortly be heard. Mr. Colvin is of military age.
§ Sir EDWARD CARSON
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the hon. Member who has asked this question is opposed to Conscription for his own country?
I asked what were the grounds upon which exemption was claimed for a gentleman who has been advocating Conscription all over the country for everybody?
