HC Deb 27 March 1941 vol 370 c723W
Mr. G. Strauss

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that Mr. Hugh Slater, one of the founders of Osterley Park training school for the Home Guard, and since then, a paid full-time servant of the War Office as lecturer in the War Office school, has now been conscripted for military service, he will take steps to secure the reservation of Mr. Hugh Slater and others in similar positions, so that they may be enabled to continue to serve the Army in the capacity for which their special experience and abilities best qualify them?

Mr. Law

It is the aim in every case to secure that those who are called up for military service are employed in the Army to the best advantage, and my hon. Friend can be assured that this principle will be followed in making use of the services of Mr. Hugh Slater.
