§ 21. Sir. A. MARKHAM
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that the recruiting officer at Mansfield has refused to allow married men who desire to know at the earliest date whether their services will be required to be medically examined unless they first attest; whether he is aware that at other places facilities have been given by the recruiting officers to married men without their attesting; and whether he will direct the recruiting officer at Mansfield to give like facilities to the married men in his district?
§ Mr. TENNANT
My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. I have called for a report as to why such men are not examined by appointment if they wish to be.
