§ Mr. Liddall
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the fact that changes of address may prevent the call-up of persons liable for service under their age groups; and what steps are being taken to prevent such evasion?
§ Mr. Bevin
All persons registered under the National Service Acts are required to notify changes of address to this Ministry and are liable to penalties for not doing so. It would not be advisable to describe in detail the measures taken to trace persons liable for military service who have failed to notify changes of address, but such cases are closely followed up and where necessary I have the active assistance of the national registration authorities and the police.
