§ Mr. YEO
(by Private Notice) asked the President of the Local Government Board 2705 whether he is aware that in the absence of instruction to the contrary, many local military tribunals are still refusing exemption to business men, regardless of their domestic and financial responsibilities; whether this is resulting in widespread distress and ruin to men so situated; and whether, in view of the promises made in this House, he will immediately issue a Regulation on the subject without incurring the delay which must arise if no action is taken, until he is able to issue the comprehensive revised set of Regulations and instructions which is in contemplation?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Hayes Fisher)
The revised Regulations will, I hope, be made to-morrow and will be issued immediately.
§ Sir R. ADKINS
May I ask whether, pending the issue of these Regulations, the tribunals would do well to postpone the decisions on these cases?
