HC Deb 29 May 1941 vol 371 cc2022-3W
Mr. R. C. Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that 13066887 Private R. H. Tully, Auxiliary Military Pioneer Corps, a certificated metalwork teacher, is still in the Army, although the hon. Member for North Tottenham was informed seven weeks ago that his release had been ordered; and will he state when this decision will take effect?

Mr. Law

My hon. Friend will now have received a letter from my hon. Friend the Joint Parliamentary Undersecretary of State explaining the circumstances in which this unfortunate misunderstanding arose. As stated in that letter, Private Tully is not eligible for release, as he is undergoing a technical course with a view to transfer to the Royal Army Ordnance Corps.
