§ 34. Colonel DAY
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the military authorities are approaching boards of guardians with a view to securing lads between 14 and 15 years of age for military service; whether he will state the conditions of service these lads are called upon to perform; and under what regulation the officers of his Department have power to recruit lads of these ages?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given on the 8th July last to a similar question addressed to my predecessor by the hon. Member for the Blaydon Division of Durham.
