§ 66. Mr. Higgs
asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that his letters, dated 27th November and 9th December, 1939, Reference 279 (Gen.) 40 (SS 1B), were issued in order to secure men, who are below the respective ages of reservation, in occupations essential for the completion of Government contracts as long as possible; is he aware that these men are being called up in spite of the fact that their employers have filled in Form NS 88 as instructed; and what further action does he propose to take?
§ Colonel Llewellin
My right hon. Friend is not aware of any cases in which men have been called up in spite of the fact that their employers had filled in Form NS 88 in accordance with the arrangements. If the hon. Member has any specific cases in mind, I shall be glad to be informed of them.
