HC Deb 23 July 1918 vol 108 c1656W
Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Minister of National Service whether he is aware that W. Bradley, late No. 3910, Royal Army Medical Corps, who, after serving in France, was invalided home, recovered, volunteered for further service in Egypt, and was then sent home and discharged, has now been called upon to leave his employment with the Manchester Corporation gasworks and join up again for military service, despite the fact that there are twelve fit men on semi-skilled work in the chemical plant retort house of these gas works who have never served at all; and what action he proposes to take in the matter?


No, Sir; I have ascertained that this man has not been called up for military service. He was called up for medical examination on 25th June, and failed to present himself as he should have done.
