HC Deb 22 January 1918 vol 101 c818
54. Colonel GRETTON

asked the Minister of National Service if the 420,000 to 450,000 men now in civil employment to be enlisted under the provisions of the Military Service Bill will be men of Class I. available for the fighting services of the Navy, the Army, and the Air Force?


The minimum number of 420,000 to 450,000 men to be withdrawn from among those now in civil life includes men of all grades, but the greater proportion will consist of men in Grade I.
