HC Deb 17 May 1915 vol 71 c1989W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he has had applications from firms actually engaged in carrying out contracts for the supply of War Office or naval material for authority to forbid the further enlistment of men from their works in cases where such further enlistment must delay, endanger, or prevent the fulfilment of such contracts; and whether he has given such authority in proper cases?


The answer to both parts of the hon. Member's question is in the affirmative.
