§ Mr. Silkin
asked the Minister of Labour whether any provision has been made for women who have reached the age of 20 since the registration of the 20 age group on 19th April, 1941, to register with subsequent age groups, as is the case with men; and, if not, what is the reason for this anomaly?
§ Mr. Bevin
Women are being registered under the Registration for Employment Order according to the year of birth. Thus those born in the years 1918, 1919 and 1920 have now been registered, and further age groups will be registered as required. The date for registering girls born in the year 1921 has not yet been decided.
