HC Deb 16 August 1916 vol 85 c1863
87. Mr. R. McNEILL

asked the President of the Local Government Board if his attention has been called to a claim for exemption recently heard by the military tribunal at Brighton, in which exemption for six months was granted to a tailor who stated that he was in partnership with a German who was released from internment on condition of his not residing on the South Coast; whether this German has a shop in London while his partner runs a shop in Brighton; and whether the tribunal was acting under any instructions in granting exemption to a man of military age in order that he might continue to manage a business for a German?


My attention has not previously been called to this case, but I am having inquiries made.
