§ 21. Mr. NEEDHAM
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he will make arrangements so that appeals of married attested men may be considered by the tribunals not earlier than those of married unattested men?
§ Mr. LONG
It is important that applications for exemption should be decided without delay, and tribunals should not therefore refrain from dealing with applications which are or may come before them as promptly as possible. In so far as it can be done without delay, and in accordance with the Regulations, I think tribunals will be justified in dealing with the cases of unattested married men before those of attested married men.
