HC Deb 23 May 1916 vol 82 c1996W

asked the President of the Local Government Board if he will give the approximate number of men of military age now employed by the Board in London?


Of 320 men of military age employed by the Local Government Board in London at the beginning of the War, the number now remaining is 126. Of this number 44 have been medically rejected. Half a dozen more have been returned to the Department by the military authorities or the tribunals on various grounds. Eight more will join the forces at the end of this month, and others in the near future.
