HC Deb 22 November 1950 vol 481 c338
49. Mr. Perkins

asked the Minister of Defence what is the scholastic and general ability standard required of National Servicemen; and how many men have been rejected as being below that standard.

The Minister of Defence (Mr. Shinwell)

No standard of scholastic or general ability other than that measured by medical category is required of men called up for National Service; the second part of the Question does not, therefore, arise.
