§ 48. Major NEWMAN
asked whether, by virtue of his election to this House, a Member of military age can claim to be exempt from liability to military service; and, if not, whether, in the event of the present measure of compulsion becoming law, such Members will be automatically enrolled in their respective groups?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
Members of the House of Commons cannot, as such, claim exemption from military service, 1429 and will, therefore, if unmarried, come within the obligations of the present Bill. Whether they will be able to obtain exemption or not will depend on how far they can bring themselves within the exemptions specified in the Bill.
