HC Deb 14 March 1917 vol 91 c1109W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he is aware that competent and fully qualified fitters who have served several months with the Colours, and who have been discharged with certificates stating that they are not likely to become efficient soldiers, are being served with calling-up papers; and will he state what steps men in this position ought to take?


If my hon. Friend will supply some definite indication of the locality in which the issue of calling-up notices to fully-qualified fitters is alleged to be going on, inquiries will be made.
