HC Deb 26 October 1916 vol 86 c1273
56. Mr. LYNCH

asked the Prime Minister whether he will submit to the House a complete statement giving the names of Members of military age who form part of the Government, either as being Cabinet Ministers, or Under-Secretaries, or Parliamentary Secretaries, or as belonging to the Office of the Whips, or the like, together with the explicit reason in each case why the Member in question is not serving in the field?


No, Sir; I see no reason to adopt this suggestion.


Has the right hon. Gentleman considered the effect on the country of working men being asked to sacrifice their lives when there are so many embusqué in this House?
