§ Mr. WILLIAM THORNE
asked the Prime Minister whether the Military Service (No. 2) Bill makes it compulsory for unmarried unnaturalised aliens of military age permanently resident in this country to attest; and, if not, whether he will make provision for their attestation, seeing that British subjects could properly object to undertake military duty unless the class named are covered by the Bill?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The answer to both parts of the question is in the negative. I would point out to my hon. Friend that the admission of aliens to the Army has always been regarded as dangerous and has only been allowed under rigid restrictions.
