Every man who is reserved under the Schedule of Reserved Occupations and Protected Work is required periodically to complete a form giving particulars of the duties on which he is engaged. Hitherto, the check applied to these particulars has been mainly directed to the nature of the man's occupation, but arrangements are in process of being made to scrutinise also the nature of the output or services on which he is engaged.
