HC Deb 14 July 1913 vol 55 cc906-7W

asked the President of the Board of Trade what number of men rejected locally for colour-blindness by the Board of Trade has been passed on appeal; and what test was used for this purpose?


During the three months, 1st April to 30th June, fifteen men who failed to pass the local colour vision examinations were reported by the special examiners as having passed, and twenty-nine as having failed on appeal. The tests ordinarily used in the special examinations include a lantern test, various spectroscopic tests, a test with Nagel's anomaloscope, and any other tests which the special examiners see fit to adopt.
