HC Deb 06 April 1943 vol 388 cc516-7W
Mr. N. Bower

asked the Minister of Labour whether he can state, to the latest available date, the number of men who have been directed by employment exchanges in the London area to building work in other parts of the country and the number who have been subsequently released by the local National Service officers on production of medical certifi- cates showing their physical inability to perform the work to which they had been sent?

Mr. Bevin

I regret that the statistics desired by my hon. Friend are not available, but I have no reason to believe that there is any substantial number of men directed from London to contracts elsewhere, who have subsequently been released on medical grounds.
