HC Deb 24 May 1916 vol 82 cc2095-6

asked the President of the Local Government Board if he can obtain a hearing before the Central Tribunal of the case of Charles Dukes, of Warrington, district organiser for the Gas-workers' and General Labourers' Union, secretary of the Lancashire and Cheshire Federation of Trades Councils, secretary of the Warrington Trades' Council, member of the Warrington Munitions' Tribunal, member of the advisory committee of the Labour Exchanges (Liverpool district), his appeals to the local and county tribunals having failed; and, as hardship is likely to result to the workmen whose interests are in the hands of Mr. Dukes, will he have this case referred to the Central Tribunal in order to have an authoritative decision on a matter which is likely to be of importance with the calling up for military service of married men?


I am making inquiry in the matter.
