HC Deb 25 May 1916 vol 82 cc2281-2
78. Mr. PERCY HARRIS (Leicestershire, Harborough)

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether the Army Council will consider the possibility of making arrangements for the older married men when called up being stationed for their preliminary training as near their homes as possible, so that in their spare time they can keep in touch with their business and be enabled to supervise the adjustment of their affairs?


I sympathise with the object the hon. Member has in view, but I am informed that this proposal is not practicable.
