§ 53. Colonel Gomme-Duncan
asked the Minister of Labour if, in the case of Scotland, he will extend until 3rd January the concession he has already made in the calling up dates of persons due to report during the Christmas season.
62. Lieut.-Commander Clark Hutchison
asked the Minister of Labour whether, having regard to the fact that New Year's Day is a public holiday in Scotland, he will arrange with the Service Departments that the temporary deferment of intake of men shall continue in force until 5th January.
§ Mr. Isaacs
I am unable to extend the concession until 5th January, but I am arranging that men living in Scotland shall not be asked to report before 3rd January.
