§ 98. Sir J. D. REES
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the 1697 Government will consider the advisability of not calling up married groups until the supply of single men has been exhausted?
§ Mr. TENNANT
All groups of unmarried men who have voluntarily attested and all classes of unmarried men subject to the Military Service Act have already been called up. The Government fully considered the necessities of the due supply of men to be drawn for Army service before calling up any groups of married men.
§ Sir J. D. REES
Without controverting what the right hon. Gentleman says, does not the Government think that the loyal married men have a just cause of complaint in the numerous exemptions given on the pretext of conscience?
