IN order to clear up any misunderstanding that may arise in consequence of recent legislation concerning reserved occupations, the Royal Society desires to point out that an unmarried chemist of military age entitled to exemption as an “analytical consulting or research chemist” should, unless he has been attested before March 2, lodge a claim for exemption with the local tribunal before that date. Men who have been attested should lodge their claims for exemption with the recruiting officer or local tribunal when called up for enlistment; and if such claims be not admitted, a communication stating all material facts in favour of the disputed claim should be addressed at once to the secretaries of the Royal Society, Burlington House, London.
