§ Lieut.-Commander Bell
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will so regulate the intake of new man-power into the three Defence Services as to rectify at the earliest possible time any inequalities in the rate of release from service which are expected to arise out of the future course of the war, in order that men may not be penalised through being in one service rather than another.
§ Mr. McCorquodale
Yes, Sir. In so far as intake contributes towards equality of the rate of release in the three Services, everything possible will be done, but as I explained on the Adjournment on 31st May, equality does not depend only upon the rate of intake.
