HC Deb 05 August 1941 vol 373 c1794W
Mr. Liddall

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is satisfied that all medically fit men, temporary or permanent, serving in Government Departments, of and under the age of 25, have now been released for whole-time service in the Armed Forces of the Crown?

Captain Crookshank

In the Civil Service, as in industry generally, some deferments of the calling-up of men under the age of reservation have been granted on the grounds that the men are indispensable in work of urgent national importance.
