HC Deb 21 February 1917 vol 90 cc1317-8
37. Mr. O'GRADY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the case of Daniel Griffiths, aged thirty-six, school teacher, Llanelly, who has been ordered to do work of national importance; whether he is aware that Griffiths on being medically examined and passed C3 and is already engaged in work of national importance by reason of the fact that Circular 952, Board of Education, and Army Council Instruction 1398 make teaching a certified occupation to all medically classed below A; and whether, having regard to these facts, instructions will be given for Griffiths to remain in civil occupation at his present work as a teacher?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on 19th February to the question put to me by the hon. Member for Blackburn with regard to Mr. Daniel Griffiths.
