§ Major HUNT
asked the Minister of National Service whether officers and men who have not served overseas are liable to be called up under the new Military Service Act whilst still under medical treatment?
§ Mr. BECK
It is assumed that the question relates to officers and men who have left the forces in consequence of disablement or ill-health. These men are legally liable to be called up for medical examination, and, if found fit, would be called up for service, unless they are engaged in certified work of national importance as laid down in Paragraph 4 (b) of the First Schedule to the Military Service (No. 2) Act, 1918.
