§ 64. Colonel Sir A. Lambert Ward
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that No. 7672041, Private Ronald Pegg, R.A.P.C., was recalled to the Army on 29th April; that this will entail the closing down of his business, as every effort to find a manager has failed; and, as the closing down of this business will cause serious inconvenience in the neighbourhood and as Private Pegg is a C category man, will be consider granting him release from the Army.
§ Sir J. Grigg
This case has been very carefully considered. It undoubtedly has elements of hardship, but, having regard to the fact that there are many others like it, I regret that it is impossible to grant this man any further release.
