HC Deb 31 May 1916 vol 82 c2732W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that national service badges have been, supplied to three surveyors of taxes in Belfast and two of their clerks, while other Belfast surveyors and their staffs who have signed forms agreeing to join the Army and go on Foreign service have had no badges issued to them; and whether, in view of the fact that the men without badges are accused of being slackers, he will issue badges to them or withdraw those already issued?


I am much obliged to my hon. Friend for drawing my attention to this matter, and badges will be issued forthwith in the cases to which he refers.
