HC Deb 21 August 1916 vol 85 c2260
105. Mr. A. WILLIAMS

asked whether men engaged in a starred occupation, namely, coal-mining, and medically rejected for military service, are being required to submit themselves for re-examination; and, if so, whether it is intended to pass such men into the Army or to retain them in the work of getting coal?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. It is intended for the present to retain these men in the work of getting coal.
