§ 41. Mr. SNOWDEN
asked if Grade 3 men over forty-one years of age are now being called to the Colours in spite of the pledges given by him that this would not be done?
§ Sir A. GEDDES
If the hon. Member will consult the OFFICIAL REPORT of the Debate on the 11th April of this year he will find that the words I used were:I am not giving any pledge that Grade 3 men will not be called up. At present Grade 3 men of the new military age are not being called up.I would remind the hon. Member, however, that the new military age begins, approximately, at forty-three, not at forty-one!
