HC Deb 22 October 1941 vol 374 c1795W
Lieut.-Colonel Heneage

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to dissatisfaction in county and industrial districts at the number of men in reserved occupations who could do a certain amount of training with the Forces, and take no part in military or civil defence life?

Mr. Sandys

If my hon. and gallant Friend is advocating the introduction of a measure of compulsion for the Home Guard and part-time civil defence services, I would refer him to the answer given by the Lord Privy Seal to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Ayr Burghs (Sir T. Moore) on 8th October.
