§ 40. Colonel LESLIE WILSON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether a non-commissioned officer or man who has been re-examined under Army Council Instruction No. 643, of 1917, issued in connection with the Military Service (Review of Exceptions) Act, and who is given a discharge paper endorsed with the statement that he is discharged in consequence of being reexamined and found permanently and totally unfit for service, is, under any Regulations, liable to be recalled for further examination; and, if so, under what conditions can a man consider himself totally and finally exempted from further service?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of NATIONAL SERVICE (Mr. Beck)
My hon. Friend has asked me to reply. An officer, noncommissioned officer, or man given a discharge certificate after medical examination under the Military Service (Review of Exceptions) Act, 1917, showing that he is permanently and totally unfit for military service, is not liable under any Statute or Regulations to be recalled for medical examination or for military service.
