HC Deb 03 July 1916 vol 83 c1189
70. Mr. WING

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War what is the exact position of the men who enlisted under the Derby scheme and were rejected by the recruiting doctor, who wear the armlet, and have a card of rejection; does the Military Service Act, 1916, affect their position in any way; and are they subject to re-enlistment or will they be called up, or if called up will their previous rejection be a sufficient answer to such new call?


The Military Service Act does not affect the position of attested men in the groups in any way.
