§ 26. Mr. J. J. Lawson
asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that men serving in the R.A.F. were urgently invited, in 1941, to volunteer for work in aircraft factories and that such volunteers were given papers on going to the factories specifically stating that the period of release would count as service towards their current engagement; and whether, in view of this pledge, he will now agree that any man temporarily released will have that period counted for service.
§ Mr. Lawson
Will my right hon. Friend answer that part of the Question which asks if he is aware that in the R.A.F. men who volunteered for service in the factories were given a guarantee that the period of release would count towards their current service?
