HC Deb 15 March 1916 vol 80 c2072

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether single men who applied for service in the Officers' Training Corps and were rejected for medical reasons since the 14th August, 1915, are being dealt with by the War Office as being liable to serve under the Military Service Act, 1916; and, if so, what justification the War Office has for treating rejection in such cases as invalid under that Act?


An application for service in an Officers' Training Corps is not an offer of enlistment within the meaning of the Military Service Act.
