HC Deb 31 October 1916 vol 86 cc1564-5W

asked the Secretary for Scotland if his attention has been directed to the fact that the Orkney Tribunal has refused exemption to a young man, Private J. Sabiston, practically the stand-by of the island, and that the islanders will find it almost impossible to do any fishing or visit the mainland on urgent business; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


I have no reason to doubt that the tribunal decided the case referred to with knowledge of the facts; but I am making inquiry.
