HC Deb 01 June 1916 vol 82 c2935W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will consider the position of Mr. Edward J. Thomas, 4, Hargrave Mansions, Upper Holloway, N., who offered his services in April, 1915, and was rejected on medical grounds, and who, on presenting himself a second time at the request of the authorities under the Derby scheme, was informed, after a note of the particulars given on his certificate of rejection had been taken, that he would not be troubled further although he was not medically examined a second time and no new certificate of rejection was given to him; and, in view of the fact that the April rejection was, in substance, adopted subsequent to 14th August, 1915, will he say whether he must now be treated as an un-attested man and deprived of the provision made in Section 2, Clause 3, of the Military Service Act?


I have asked for a report.
