HC Deb 26 July 1916 vol 84 c1699W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has received any complaints of the effect on the enrolment of men of the methods of the Civil Liabilities Committee; whether, dissatisfied with the financial allowances many men are receiving, tribunals are postponing the cases of men who appeal for a very considerable period; and whether, in the interests of his Department, he will investigate the matter and remedy the causes of complaint?


Yes, Sir, some reports have been received to the effect stated in the first two parts of the question. Steps have been taken to investigate the matter, and when completed the Local Government Board, which is responsible for this Committee, will be consulted if any alteration in procedure is considered necessary.
