HC Deb 17 May 1916 vol 82 c1515
100. Mr. SNOWDEN

asked if men coming under the Military Service Act will have the choice of volunteering for service in the Navy?


By Sub-section (3) of Section 1 of the Military Service Act the Admiralty is given the first call on men who express their preference for naval service in case their services are needed for that purpose. This provision will apply to men coming under the operation of the new Bill.
