HC Deb 25 October 1916 vol 86 cc1109-10

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can explain the arrangements made in respect of less fit men returned to employers in exchange for fitter men released for military service; to what extent the men returned to employers will remain soldiers; and whether, in the event of an employer dismissing such a man, he will be free to seek employment elsewhere?


Men who are returned to employers in exchange for men re- leased for military service will remain in the Army Reserve. The answer to the last part of the question is in the affirmative.
