HC Deb 14 November 1916 vol 87 c548
95. Sir C. HENRY

asked the Home Secretary if he will recognise the desirability of issuing Regulations prohibiting the employment of any person of military age, subjects of any of the Allies, unless he can produce evidence of having offered himself for military service and either has been rejected or else placed in a class which for the time being does not require his services?


I am not yet in a position to state the further measures which will be taken by the Government with reference to this question.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Prime Minister stated the other day that this matter would betaken into consideration?


Yes, Sir. The Prime Minister stated that measures were in preparation. I hope it will be possible to make a statement very shortly.
