HC Deb 15 May 1918 vol 106 c339
90. Sir B. FALLE

asked the Minister of National Service if he can explain the difference between an estate agent and a house agent for the purposes of the National Service Act?


I assume that my hon. Friend refers to the Military Service (Withdrawal of Exemptions) Order No. 1, 1918, issued under the Military Service Act, 1918. The difference for the purposes of the Order is that the term "house agent" which appears in Part 1 of the Order is not intended to apply to persons whose principal and usual occupation is the administration or management of land and the development of real property estates, but does apply to those persons who, according to their principal and usual occupation, are engaged in the letting or selling of houses.
