HC Deb 15 May 1916 vol 82 c1114
37. Mr. THOMAS

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a railway loader named Norman M. Williamson holds a certificate (No. 823) of exemption from the provisions of the Military Service Act, 1916, which was issued by the East Ham Local Tribunal, the exemption being conditional whilst he contiues in his present occupation; that the local recruiting officer has now summoned him to join the Colours on 17th May and informed him that the exemption certificate is void as from 1st May; and, having regard to the fact that Williamson is still following his occupation as a railway loader, whether the recruiting officer has made a mistake in this case?


I have called for a report.
