HC Deb 08 May 1916 vol 82 c295W

asked the Prime Minister if he will state the position under the Military Service Bill of the married man ordinarily resident in England but who is at present abroad and who cannot manage, owing to distance, to be in this country within thirty days from the appointed day; and will such a case have to join up on his arrival in this country or will he get thirty days from the date of his arrival?


It will be the duty of such a man to return to this country forthwith, and to report himself to the military authorities on his arrival.
