§ Mr. HAYDN JONES
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been directed to the case of Private Evan Morgan Jones, No. 4442, 3/7th Battalion, B Company, Royal Welsh Fusiliers, who was given non-combatant service by the Festiniog Local Tribunal; whether he is aware that the military representative raised no objection to this course being followed and did not appeal from the decision, but that the recruiting officers, ignoring the decision of the tribunal, have sent Private Jones to combatant service; and whether they were authorised in setting aside and ignoring the decision of the tribunal?1431W
§ Mr. FORSTER
My right hon. Friend, the President of the Local Government Board has asked me to answer this question. I can only say to-day that inquiry is being made. When the result is received, a statement will be sent, with my hon. Friend's permission, to him by letter.
