HC Deb 26 October 1916 vol 86 c1273
50. Colonel GRIFFITHS

asked what the Government's intentions are with regard to the substitution of single men by men who as a result of military service have been found unfit for further active service and whose services are of greater value to the country in civil life than in the Army?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

I understand that a substitution scheme is being considered by the Man Power Distribution Board and the different Government Departments concerned which will meet the cases in question. As my hon. and gallant Friend is aware, a scheme of substitution for the munitions industry was announced yesterday.
