HC Deb 06 February 1951 vol 483 c1519
32. Dr. Barnett Stross

asked the Minister of Labour whether the proposed protection of Class Z Reservists against loss of employment or holidays will be made available also for Territorials.

Mr. Lee

This matter, together with many others arising out of the Prime Minister's statement in the House on 29th January, 1951, is being urgently considered.

Dr. Stross

Will my hon. Friend bear in mind that the Territorials give not only their 14 or 15 days a year but also one or two nights a week, and that it would be very helpful indeed if they had the same privileges?

Commander Noble

Can the Minister say whether it would be possible to give an answer next week in the Defence debate?

Mr. Lee

I cannot say. I can only repeat that the matter is under most urgent consideration and that a statement will be made as soon as possible.
