HC Deb 17 June 1941 vol 372 c498W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the demand for trained men for munitions production, he will consider the advisability of releasing skilled men from the Forces after they have received adequate military training?

Captain Margesson

As my hon. Friend the Financial Secretary stated in answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Dewsbury (Mr. Riley) on 28th May, I am always willing to consider the release of individual men from the Army where a sufficiently strong case is made out and it is supported by the Government Department directly concerned.
