§ 42. Mr. WATT
asked the. Minister of Munitions whether his attention has been called to the fact that in many districts in Scotland factors of estates and solicitors take part often as chairmen in the work of tribunals under the Military Service Act; that these men not infrequently propose and influence the exemption of their tenants and clients in order that the rents may be secured and the solicitors' clientele preserved; and, if so, will he issue a circular putting a stop to this practice?
§ The LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. Munro)
The reply to the first portion of my hon. and learned Friend's question is in the affirmative, and to the second portion is in the negative. The suggested circular is, therefore, in my opinion, unnecessary.
