§ 67. Mr. George Thomas
asked the Minister of Labour the number of youths in Cardiff who were liable for conscription to the Armed Forces during, 1948 and 1949; the number actually conscripted; and whether he is prepared to review the system of conscription.
§ The Minister of Labour (Mr. Isaacs)
The number of men in Cardiff who became liable for registration under the National Service Acts in each of the years 1948 and 1949 was between 1,500 and 1,600. As explained in my reply to the hon. Member for Blackpool, North (Mr. Low), on 3rd April, 1950, I cannot say the number of men called up from those who registered in any particular place. The answer to the last part of the Question is, "No."
