asked the Taoiseach if he will state whether our migratory workers who go to Great Britain for a period of six months each year for employment with English and Scottish farmers are now liable to military service on arrival there, and if he will make a statement clarifying the position of Irish citizens generally in Great Britain in relation to compulsory military service there.
