asked the Undersecretary of State for War whether he is aware of the feeling throughput the country against sending overseas lads under nineteen; whether, now that there is a prospect of large contingents from America arriving in Europe, he can hold out a prospect of lads not now being required to go overseas under nineteen; and whether instructions can be given for lads under nineteen now overseas to be employed on work behind the lines?47W
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on the 25th April last to a question by my right hon. Friend the Member for Derby.
