§ 77. Mr. KEATING
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether men discharged from the Army or Navy since the outbreak of war are liable to be called up under the Military Service Act, 1916?
§ Mr. TENNANT
I would refer my hon. Friend to paragraph 5 of the First Schedule to the Military Service Act. He will observe from that paragraph that men who have left or been discharged from the naval or military service of the Crown in consequence of disablement or ill-health (including officers who have ceased to hold a commission in consequence of disablement or ill-health), and, subject to any provision which may hereafter be made by Parliament, men who have been discharged from the naval or military service of the Crown at the termination of their period of service are not subject to the provisions of the Act. Men who have been discharged for other reasons than those stated are not within the exceptions.
