§ Mr. PARTINGTON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if the military representative is entitled to be present when the local tribunals consider their decisions in private?
§ Mr. TENNANT
As stated in the official notes on Administration of the Group and Class Systems, the question whether a military representative is entitled to be present when the local tribunal is conferring upon the decision which should be given "is one clearly within the discretion of the local tribunal in each case. Generally speaking, when one party to an application is required to withdraw, the other party cannot properly claim to be present."
