NotesThe Introduction of Compulsory Military Service. - The Government's plan for compulsory military service was announced in the House of Commons on April 26 by Mr Chamberlain. It is as follows: 1) All men between their twentieth and twenty-first birthdays will be called up for six months military training ... Limitation on Arms Profits: "I will now mention another matter which has frequently been referred to in the discusions on the subject of compulsory military service - namely, what is sometimes called the "conscription of wealth" ... We intend to take further steps to limit the profits of firms mainly engaged on the rearmament programme, and necessary legistlation will be introduced at an early date. ...
