HC Deb 20 May 1943 vol 389 c1240
70. Mr. Kirby

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has considered the communication from the hon. Member for Everton regarding the dissatisfaction of former non-commissioned officers of a certain battalion of which he has been informed, who have been demoted because of their age and are said to be engaged on training duties, etc., for which their age unsuits them; and, in view of the circumstances of their enlistment as volunteers at the beginning of the war and their past military service, will he do something to remove their grievances?

Mr. A. Henderson

Inquiries are being made, and I will communicate with my hon. Friend.
