HC Deb 05 March 1946 vol 420 c165
34. Mr. Lipson

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is now able to give particulars of the group releases from the Forces after June to enable the target of reductions announced for December, 1946, to be reached.

Mr. Isaacs

I am not yet in a position to go beyond the programme of releases and discharges up to the end of June which I announced on 14th February.

Mr. Lipson

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when he will be able to make a statement, as this is a matter of great concern to members of the Forces?

Mr. Isaacs

I am not sure. I think some reference was made to the matter by the Prime Minister yesterday, but we are anxious to make a statement as soon as possible and we realise that it is desirable to do so.
