HC Deb 23 November 1916 vol 87 c1609W

asked whether men who after offering themselves and being rejected receive a notice for re-examination are then re-examined and given certificates marked rejected, and therefore exempt from military service, are finally free from all claims under the Military Service Acts; and does the announcement to the effect that men who have been rejected since the 25th May last will not at present be called up in any way affect the position of such men?


Men who have offered themselves for enlistment since 14th August, 1915, and who on being called up for re-examination are rejected as unfit for any form of military service are not liable to be called up again under the Military Service Acts. The announcement referred to by my hon. Friend does not affect the position of such men.
