At the conclusion of Questions,


rose in his place and asked leave to move the Adjournment of the House for the purpose of discussing a matter of definite and urgent public importance, namely, "the action of the Army Council in calling up men for service on the 1st November who have voluntarily attested and who, prior to the 24th June, have attained the age of 41 years, such action being a breach of the conditions under which such men attested and placing them at a serious disadvantage as compared with unattested men"; and the pleasure of the House having been signified, the Motion stood over, under Standing Order No. 10, until a quarter-past Eight this evening.
