THE COMPULSION BILL 0
THE COMPULSION BILL ..0 1 MEASURE PASSES THROUGH THE COMMITTEE STAGE ) I t CASE OF HOME SERVICE MEN I I The Military Service Bill passed through its Committee Stage on Thursday, and the remaining stages will be taken on Monday. During the earlier part of the sitting the most interesting discussion anne o^n the question of the relation of the Bfli'l to the Home Servicemen of the Territorial Army, who have not volunteered for foreign ser/vice. As the Bill was drafted, it applied to all the?e, provided, & course, they were single and of the soocined age. But the Government on Thursday an- nounced an important concession, by adding words which will exempt those members of the Territorial Force who, in the opinion of the Army Council, are not suited for foreign service." Mr. Tennant told the House that out of the thousands of men woo had joined the Territorials since the. war broke out only a very small numlter would be liable to the compulsion of this hill. because all the rest are either married or have already I volunteered for foreign service. The Government, as M.r. Bonar Law said, are MioTw fo I 'rpa. the Home men with even- consideration, as, inecefl, the, I -1 deserve, for- the, have been mobilised since II the outbreak of the. war. Options for Home Service Men. 1 That consideration is to talce the follow- ing forms: (1) The fvincr'e Home Servi^p. men will ¡ h", abb to volunteer for foreign service down to the appointed day. fhey will be allowed to join their own units at the front, or, if they ex- press a preference for any particular section for which their technical know- ledge make?? th<>Tn suitable, their desire wiil be met a.* far as practicable. (n They will nl«o b? able to appear before the tribunals and state their case for -special treatment. But those single Home Service men who do nothing, and Jet things taJre their course, will lie discharged from the Terri- torial Force, and will immediately become liable to the provisions of the Bill. The Case cf the Clergy. Later there was an animated disen*«rion on the exemption ox the elersy and regular ministers. Several members dfwirsd that this exempt ion should be withdrawn, but from different motive?. Mr. Bonar low pointed out that the bill does not prevent anyone from volunteer- ing, if he so desires, but the- diflfieultv, of course, with the roTingP- i Church of Eng- land -clergy is that they have been pro- hibited from volunteering by the bishops, wfcom they are bound to obey. The amend- ment was eventually withdrawn Short and desultory discussions aIM took place over amendments proposing to extend exemption to members of religious orders, doctors, dentists, and others" but I without practical effect*. The New Tribunals. I Before the House entered into detailed discussion of the *e}iedale dealing ith the tribunals, Mr. Long e. d ii r; i Iex-I planatory statement. He sa.i d (hat, in addition to the local tribunals and the central tribunal of the Derby scheme, a new special appeal triotlnal would be set up in order to avoid congestion and de'gv The central tribunal was also to be made more representative in character. The hill would, he hoped, bp administered in the spirit in which it had been disruwd in the House, and to that reasonable spirit, in fpite of the controversial charac- ter of the measure, he paid the ftcknow- jj ledgmpiitss of the Government. As to the tribunals themselves, Aft" Long 1 explained: 1. That, tTia Government w-ould ap- point the appeal and central tribunals, whik th local tribunals would be ap- pointed by the local authorities. 2. In all eases Labour would be ade- quately represented. 3. Care would be taken to appoint a certain number of persons who were specially qualified to safpguand the in- terests of the conscientious objector.

SHIP REPAIRING I Vessels Dry-Docked at Swan- sea and Port Talbot. The Times Annual Financial and Commercial Review n ftubliehed with, the journal on Friday, contains an interesting article on Repairing in South Wales," which it: describee as one of the most important trades in the United Kingdom, a huds employment- for some thousands of workers. Every year over 2,000 vessels of approximately 6,000.000 gross tons arc, dry-docked at the pcT-i-f of Cardiff, Penarth, Barry, Swaneea, Newport, and Port Talbot. In reviewing 191.5 the article states that the firet six months of the year was a period of par- ticular anxiety to employers, owing to the shortage of labour, caased by hundreds of wcrkers enlisting and others migrating- to the Government yards, combined in 6top- pages to enforce demands for in('reaed ï wages to meet tha advanced cost of liviJl. ( The dry dock cn?neprs put forward a demand for an. increase of no less than 15s. per week in their wages. Several meetings of representatives of the employers and the men were held, but no settlement was reached, and the engineers intimated that, until their demands were complied with they would not work overtime. This threat was put into operation in the early part of March, and was persisted in until the close of May. The dispute was then settled, the men accepting a weekly war bonus of 4s. During 1!)J5 Swansea dry-docked 23A •vessels of about 3fiS,(KK) gross tons, com- pared with 1..8:1 of r,5,DIM tons in 1914. Port Talhot dry-docked la^t year 75 vessels of 203.000 tons, compared with ? of 153,000 tons in 1914. The Port Talbot Graving Dook and Shipbuilding Company. Ltd., Ltd., made a Wofit of £ 8,251 in the twelve months ended July 31 st, or £ 2,403 more than in the preceding year, and the divi- dend to the ordinary shareholders was in- creased from 5 per cent. to 10 per cent.
