HC Deb 09 October 1945 vol 414 c10
23. Viscount Hinching brooke

asked the Minister of Labour what are the numbers in each release group in each of the services, sub-divided into main categories; and what is the total strength of the different arms and branches of the services in each theatre of war.

The Minister of Labour (Mr. Isaacs)

I will circulate in the Official Reportas soon as possible a statement giving the numbers in each of the first 50 release groups in each of the Services. In view of the amount of work involved, I do not feel justified in asking the Service Departments to sub-divide these figures. As regards the second part of the Question, it would not be in the public interest to give the information asked for by the hon. and Noble Member.
