HC Deb 21 March 1944 vol 398 c674
64. Major Nield

asked the Minister of Labour if he is able to make any statement as to the intentions of the Government as regards adopting a points scheme for demobilisation.

63. Lady Apsley

asked the Minister of Labour whether the Government have now reached a decision to demobilise the Forces by points, based on age and length of service, family, and pre-war responsibilities; and whether he can yet make any statement as to the details of the scheme.

Mr. Tomlinson

My right hon. Friend regrets that he is not, at this moment, in a position to make a further statement on the Government's plans.

Major Nield

Will the hon. Gentleman say whether the report in the Press that the Parliamentary Secretary is presiding over a committee dealing with the matter is correct, and, if so, who is on the Committee?

Mr. Tomlinson

I cannot say at the moment whether it is correct.
