HC Deb 18 December 1945 vol 417 c1106
44. Flying-Officer Bowden

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will agree that service in the coal mining industry as ballottees or volunteers, may count towards release under the age-plus-service release system for any men subsequently drafted into the Services.

Mr. Isaacs

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for North-Eastern Derby (Mr. H. White) on 29th November, a copy of which I am sending him.
