Miss Ward

asked the Minister of Labour whether instructions as to the release of personnel for service in voluntary organisations assisting in the rehabilitation of Europe have been issued to Employment Exchanges and Appointments Boards,

Mr. Bevin

No general instructions have been issued to the Department's local offices as decisions regarding the release of applicants for this work are made at headquarters. Release has been agreed to in approximately 90 per cent. of applications for men and women combined and in 93 per cent. of applications for women only.
