HC Deb 08 July 1941 vol 373 c31
53. Sir Percy Hurd

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether, in order to secure a speedy answer to the ministerial calls for more entrants into the various war services, he will ask Lord Kennet's Committee to make interim reports and thus enable the work of combing out of men and women of military age to proceed forthwith?

Mr. Munro (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. My right hon. hon. and gallant Friend will bring the matter to the attention of Lord Kennet's committee

Brigadier-General Clifton Brown

Is my hon. Friend aware that contractors working for Government Departments employ many thousands of these young men who are eligible for military service, and will he hasten the inquiry to comb out these people?

Mr. Munro

I understand that the attention of the Committee will be drawn immediately to the point raised.
