22. Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked what is the nature and effect of the protection certificate issuable by recruiting officers on application by men in categories C2 and C3?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
The effect of the certificates duly issued by recruiting officers to men referred to in my answer to my hon. Friend's question on 24th October is, that they have this certificate to show if they are called upon to produce a certificate of exemption. It is also an indication to an employer and others that the man is not a deserter or absentee from the Army, and that he may therefore be taken into employment. I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of the certificate in question.
Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
It does not give a man any security as to the period in which he is called up, as to whether it will be a month or two months?
