HC Deb 14 July 1913 vol 55 c899W

asked the Secretary for War whether, in view of the fact that Belgium is about to add 30,000 men to her peace strength, he can say whether personal service will remain limited to that of one son per family or will there be any change in the Belgian law of recruiting?
