HC Deb 18 February 1941 vol 369 c49W
Mr. Muff

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that persons have refused to attend for medical examination after proper registration for military service; and can he state the policy of His Majesty's Government in such cases?

Mr. Bevin:

Proceedings are taken when appropriate in order to secure attendance before a medical board. Some difficulty has arisen in certain cases where men have refused to submit to a proper medical examination and I am considering whether the law needs strengthening in this connection.
