HC Deb 06 July 1939 vol 349 cc1513-4W
Mr. Oliver

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will state the procedure he intends to adopt with respect to persons whose application to postpone their liability to be called up for military training under the Military Training Act has been granted where the grounds of postponement are seasonal or other recurring incidence of employment; and whether it is intended to call up such persons for training immediately at the expiration of their postponed period to avoid hardship in the following year or in the ordinary way which may be many months after their temporary exemption has expired?

Mr. E. Brown:

Yes, Sir. The endeavour will be to arrange that the period of training of such persons may coincide as far as possible with the period of seasonal slackness.
