HC Deb 17 July 1916 vol 84 c647
105. Mr. O'DOWD

asked the Secretary of State for War whether an Irishman, a qualified school teacher engaged in his profession for the past twelve years in this country, can be compulsorily called to the Colours under the Military Service Act now in operation in Great Britain?


Yes, Sir, he would come within the provisions of the Military Service Acts as a British subject ordinarily resident in Great Britain.
