§ 9. Mr. Rhys Davies
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that some university students are allowed a postponement of their calling-up for military service to complete their studies in the sciences, but that the same facilities are not granted to art students; and will he take steps to ensure that both categories of students are treated alike?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the right hon. Member for Kirkcaldy (Mr. Kennedy) on 23rd November.
§ Mr. Davies
Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind the very severe hardship that this imposes on students, especially those who are in their last year of education at a university?
§ Mr. Edmund Harvey
Would it not be possible to have a general arrangement to postpone the calling up of all students who are in their last year and within a few months of their examinations?
