HC Deb 13 November 1945 vol 415 cc2049-50W
Mr. Paton

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will state the reasons why private No. 1693011, whose name and unit have been supplied to him, is now awaiting embarkation for abroad, when he is due for demobilisation next March and his pay book is marked, because of his physical condition, home duties only.

Mr. Lawson

This soldier is in Group 26 and his medical category is A1. In these circumstances he is eligible for posting to B.A.O.R. under normal rules. I have no record of any change of medical category but he will be medically examined before he proceeds overseas and if declared unfit will not be dispatched.
