§ Mr. TOOTILL
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions if his attention has been drawn to the discharges from the Central Stores Department, Liverpool; whether he is aware that men who volunteered for Army service but were rejected on medical grounds, who are married and have family responsibilities, are being discharged whilst single men are being retained; whether due consideration is given to the merits of each case; and whether he will have inquiries made into the matter?
§ Mr. A. SHORT
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether his attention has been drawn to the correspondence that has been sent to his Department dealing with the discharges of men from His Majesty's Stores, Wallis Road, Hackney Wick; whether he is aware that these discharges appear to be taking place without any definite policy being laid down, inasmuch as other men are placed in the jobs so made vacant; why this is so; and what steps are being taken to stop these unnecessary discharges?1547W
