HC Deb 06 February 1918 vol 101 c2244W

asked the Minister of Munitions if a carpenter, aged forty-one, and classified in category C 1, who is a munition volunteer, and is employed for twelve hours a day in the manufacture of seaplanes, is obliged to drill with the Volunteers if ordered to do so by the military service tribunal?


I have been asked to answer this question. If application for exemption is made to a tribunal, it is competent to the tribunal to impose a condition that the man should join the Volunteer Force if, on the merits of the case, they consider this resonable. It is open to the man to appeal from a decision of the local tribunal to the Appeal Tribunal; it is also open to him to apply for a variation of his certificate.
