HC Deb 22 December 1916 vol 88 cc1841-2W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether men passed to the Army Reserve, Class W, are liable to be called for medical reexamination; and whether, in the event of the medical category being changed, the Reservist is transferred from the Reserve?


A man is transferred to Army Reserve, Class W, under Section 12 of the Military Service Act (Session 2), in oases where the transfer appears expedient in the general interests of the country, and the Army Council are satisfied that it can be effected under conditions which will render the man transferred immediately available for service in the case of military necessity.
