§ 119. Mr. ANDERSON
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been directed to the case in which a London tribunal imposed as a condition of exemption and as an alternative to joining the Volunteer Training Corps that the applicant, a 1696 skilled clerk, should do unpaid clerical work for the tribunal; whether any such condition was contemplated at the time of the passing of the Acts; and whether there is any limit to the conditions that may be imposed upon applicants by the tribunals?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Long)
A tribunal may impose any condition which is reasonable. Without expressing any opinion on its reasonableness, I doubt whether such a condition as is described is expedient, and I am communicating with the tribunal in question on the subject.
