§ Mr. W. THORNE
asked the right hon. Member for Barnard Castle, as representing the Ministry of National Service, if he is aware that Mr. P. A. Best, representing the firm of Self ridge's, has sent out a bulletin to the male staff asking them not to fill in substitution forms without reference to the management; and whether he intends taking any action in the matter?
§ Mr. BECK
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. I am informed by the Director-General of National Service that the action taken by Mr. P. A. Best had not been brought to-his notice until the hon. Member's question was forwarded to him. The Director-General of National Service is immediately communicating with the firm concerned.
