asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has published an A.C.I. for issue to commanding officers regarding the release of Class B men registered as agriculturists or ancillary trades.
§ Mr. Lawson:
Instructions are issued from the War Office in each individual case for an offer of release to be made to any man who is eligible for Class B release as an agricultural worker. No general A.C.I. dealing specifically with the release of agricultural workers is necessary, as they are dealt with in the same way as other classes of men to whom offers of Class B release are being made. Full instructions have been issued and are in the hands of all commanding officers covering the whole of the procedure relating to Class B releases.
