Mr. Stokes

asked the Secretary of State for Air why No. 1225394, A. C. Marks, who volunteered in June, 1940, who first went before a medical board on4th August and again on 21st April, 1941, has not received the board's decision, as in consequence this man is regarded by the Employment Exchange as technically in the forces and cannot get work even of national importance?

Sir A. Sinclair

This airman was enrolled in the R.A.F. on nth January of this year and was placed on deferred service, which does not preclude continuation of, or a fresh engagement in, a civil occupation. On 21st April he was medically examined at his own request, when he was found to be permanently unfit for R.A.F. service and recommended for discharge. He was notified on 23rd May, when his discharge certificate was posted to him, that his discharge would be effective as from that date.
