HC Deb 23 May 1946 vol 423 c532
55. Mr. Hale

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that Mr. George E. Colson, who volunteered in November, 1943, for flying duty with the Fleet Air Arm, after obtaining his intermediate B.Sc. and was discharged unfit in December, 1945, and who is now studying for his final B.Sc. with a view to entering the teaching profession, has been informed that he will be called up for further service before he can complete his training; and whether he will take steps to ensure that this man is allowed to complete his training.

Mr. Isaacs

Since I wrote to my hon. Friend on 4th May about the case to which he refers it has been decided to reconsider the general question of calling up for further service men who have been discharged from the Armed Forces. I will write to my hon. Friend again or make an announcement as soon as a decision is reached.
