§ 30. Mr. ELLIS GRIFFITH
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether a circular has been sent to boards of guardians requesting them not to give appointments to men of military age; and whether this rule is acted upon in any and what Government Department?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Long)
My Department issued a circular on the 21st May to boards of guardians and other local authorities, suggesting that, where vacancies occur, appointments should not be made of men who are eligible for the Army or Navy or for other national service. The same rule is being acted upon in the Department.
