§ Mr. SNOWDEN
asked the Minister of Munitions if men who have been combed out of munitions works for the Army, and then on medical examination are rejected, can be reclaimed by their late employers under the Munitions Act; and, if such men refuse to go back to their former employment because they have the offer of better employment elsewhere, are they under that Section of the Munitions Act which forbids their re-employment for six weeks?
§ Dr. ADDISON
It is not competent for me to express an authoritative opinion on this matter, which could only be decided by a Munitions Tribunal, or, on appeal, by a Munitions Appeal Tribunal. The proper course for any man finding himself in the position described in the question, who does not wish to return to or remain with his previous employer, is for him to test the matter by applying to a Munitions Tribunal for a leaving certificate in case the employer refuses a certificate.
