HC Deb 18 February 1941 vol 369 cc12-3
21. Sir Reginald Blair

asked the Secretary of State for War whether members of the Army Officers' Emergency Reserve who are rejected on medical grounds are in all cases given information as to their medical grading; and, if not so informed in all cases, will he see that the practice is now changed?

Captain Margesson

It is the practice to inform all members of the Army Officers' Emergency Reserve in which medical category they have been placed, except in amputation cases for which no grading exists. In the latter cases, members are told whether or not they are fit for employment.

Mr. Robert Gibson

Can my right hon. and gallant Friend say now whether when those serving men who have been changed in category and brought into a lower category are men skilled in industry, they are immediately given an opportunity of returning to their occupations?

Captain Margesson

Perhaps the hon. and learned Member will put that Question on the Paper.
