HC Deb 22 December 1916 vol 88 cc1832-3W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if his attention has been called to the case of Frederic C. Caple, who was rejected as being medically unfit for the Army on 10th December, 1915, at the Lambeth Town Hall; if he is aware that, although this man holds Army Form B, 2512 A, he has been ordered to join the Colours; that he did not receive a pink form; that the military representative refuses to recognise his certificate of rejection; and whether he proposes to take any action in this case?


Inquiries are being made, and I will inform my hon. Friend of the result in due course.


asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether a man who attested under the Derby scheme, and who was rejected as medically unfit, and whose attestation was cancelled, can now be ordered to join the Army, the man's age now being 41 years and eight months?


I am afraid that I cannot answer this question without further particulars. If my hon. Friend will supply these, I will let him know the answer in due course.
