HC Deb 04 July 1916 vol 83 c1353

(by Private Notice): I beg to ask the Under-Secretary for War a question of which my hon. Friend (Mr. Snowden) has given notice, whether he can say what are the probabilities of attested youths being called to the Colours before they reach the age of nineteen?


I am glad to take this opportunity of correcting what I said on 26th June. I should have said it is not improbable that these youths will be called to the Colours, whereas I fear I did say it is not probable. An error had crept into the typewritten reply from which I was reading.
