HC Deb 05 October 1944 vol 403 cc1107-8
13. Mr. Bellenger

asked the Minister of Labour whether it is proposed to call up to the Forces young men at present deferred to replace those released from the Forces under the demobilisation plan on an age group basis.

Mr. Bevin

As explained in the White Paper recently published, numbers of young men, including some of those at present deferred, will be called up in order to increase the rate at which older men with war service may be released.

Mr. Bellenger

Will that call-up be on an age group basis, similar to the call-up to the Armed Forces during the war?

Mr. Bevin

Yes, Sir.
