§ 17. Mr. ANDERSON
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether the members of the Sheffield Tribunal have threatened to resign their office on account of the failure of the military authorities to allow the attendance before the tribunal of a man whose certificate of exemption the tribunal had decided to review on the application of the military representative; whether he is aware that the chairman stated that the man had been passed into the Army wrong fully, having been given exemption for three months and the period not having expired; and whether he will arrange with the War Office that all men under their control whose cases are to be heard before the tribunals shall be given an opportunity to be present at the hearing?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Long)
I am in communication with the War Office respecting this matter.
