HC Deb 15 March 1917 vol 91 c1296W

asked whether the recent Order instructing heads of Departments to withdraw exemption certificates from Civil servants up to and including twenty-two years of age applies only to men passed for general service or to men in other medical categories as well?


It applies only to men fit for general service, unless the head of the Government Department concerned is of opinion that any other man is no longer so urgently required by him as to justify his continuing to retain the man in civil life.
