HC Deb 20 October 1915 vol 74 cc1805-6W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, in the canvassing for military service of those whose names appear on the pink forms, any exception will be made, as it is in Russia, in the case of the only son of a poor widow who is wholly dependent upon him for her maintenance?


The details of the scheme are now being worked out. The case of the only son of the poor widow was dealt with in a public statement made yesterday by the Director-General of Recruiting, and I have nothing at present to add to what was then said.
