HC Deb 08 July 1918 vol 108 cc47-8W

asked the Under Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been drawn to the position of Corporal J. E. Yule, No. 280410, A Company, Highland Light Infantry, who is now graded in B3, Grade 3, suffering from valvular disease of the heart and head wound, is forty-three years of age this month; whether he is aware that his only son is joining the Service just now, leaving Yule's wife at home an invalid; and if he can now be discharged to resume his old work of national importance as a gasworks stoker, making sulphate of ammonia?


I am making inquiry in this case. If the facts are as stated by my hon. and gallant Friend in his question, Corporal Yule's name will be submitted to the Ministry of Munitions with a view to his employment as an Army Reserve munition worker, and release for civil employment as a gasworks stoker.
