HC Deb 23 November 1939 vol 353 c1373
16. Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that Mr. Donald Sutherland, who is registered in the Central Register No. C.R. 52434, applied to enlist in the Queen's Westminsters, and was, on 14th November, 1939, accepted at the battalion headquarters, but was turned down by the Ministry of Labour official at the Holloway Road recruiting station because of his registration in the Central Register; that he is still without instructions from the Ministry and although registered at the Employment Exchange, Broadley Street, N.W.8, is still without employment; and whether he has any statement to make as to employment for Mr. Sutherland?

Mr. E. Brown

I am making inquiries, and will let the hon. Member have a reply as soon as possible.

Mr. Gibson

Does the right hon. Gentleman appreciate the anxiety of this Scotsman to serve his country and that his efforts are frustrated by these delays?

Mr. Brown

I must refer the hon. Member to my answer.
