HC Deb 22 March 1917 vol 91 cc2072-3W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether any representation has been made by the Board to the military authorities in the matter of Daniel Griffiths, a school teacher of Llanelly, who, although medically classed C 3, has been called to the Colours; and whether, in view of the statement as to the number of men who have been passed into the Army medically unfit and the waste of money spent in useless training of such men, steps will be taken to prevent Griffiths being among the number of medically unfit in the Army and to see that Griffiths shall be restored to his occupation as a school teacher?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. I would refer the hon. Member to the answers which I gave the hon. Member for Blackburn on the 19th ult. and the 8th inst., copies of which I am sending to him.
