HC Deb 21 August 1945 vol 413 c434
31. Captain Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for War what policy he intends to pursue regarding the training of soldiers for work in industry; and whether he is prepared to grant temporary releases in such cases.

Mr. Lawson

Generally speaking this type of training is provided by the Ministry of Labour and National Service after release from the Forces. Temporary releases are not granted for the purpose.
