§ Sir JOHN BUTCHER
asked the Minister of National Service whether he is aware that Mr. S. H. Schneider and Mr. F. C. Bovenschen are still employed in the War Office; what are the ages of these gentlemen; whether they have been exempted from military service; and, if so, for what reason?
§ Sir A. GEDDES
Yes, Sir; their ages are thirty-six and thirty-four respectively. Both have been exempted on grounds of indispensability which satisfied the Special Committee set up by the Ministry of National Service to review the exemptions of men of military age in Government Departments?
