HC Deb 26 October 1939 vol 352 c1538
15. Mr. J. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to the number of cases in which two members of the same family registered for service last week under the National Service (Armed Forces) Act; and whether he will consider granting exemption to one of the members in such cases?

Mr. E. Brown

I am aware that there are cases where two members of the same family may register for service at the same time. The Act does not provide for exemption on this ground, but application may be made for postponement in cases where exceptional hardship would arise.
