HC Deb 04 July 1918 vol 107 c1869W

asked the Minister of National Service whether, in calling up men between the ages of forty-one and fifty, any consideration has been given to men who have one or more sons fighting as compared with those whose sons, if any, are engaged on home work, either as engineers, shipbuilders, munition workers, or otherwise?


It is the duty of the tribunals to grant exemption on such personal grounds as they may think appropriate, and the decision rests entirely with those bodies. The Ministry of National Service has no control over such decisions.
