HC Deb 19 December 1946 vol 431 c2161
52. Mr. Marlowe

asked the Minister of Labour why, in view of the fact that deferment of call-up for National Service is-granted to internal students of universities and technical colleges preparing for honours degrees, such deferment is refused to external students preparing for the same degrees.

Mr. Isaacs

Students studying for external degrees can be granted deferment equally with internal students, provided they are in attendance at a recognised educational institution and, in the case of technical colleges, are pursuing a course of study approved by the Ministry of Education.
