§ 69. Mr. WING
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if, on account of several brothers being already in the Army, a youth just arriving at the age of eighteen wishes to remain at home for well-defined reasons the youth has any right of appeal for exemption; and, if so, what course should he take?
§ Mr. TENNANT
A youth just arriving at the age of eighteen becomes liable for military service on the thirtieth day following his birthday. At any time before that day an application may be made by him or on his behalf to a local tribunal for a certificate of exemption on any of the grounds provided in the Military Service Act. An application on business grounds should be made to the local tribunal for the district in which the youth's place of employment is situated. An application on personal grounds should be made to the local tribunal for the district in which he lives.
