HC Deb 11 October 1945 vol 414 c452W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Minister of Labour if he will provide that young men shall not be taken from business concerns until replacements are available; and if he is aware that serious interruptions in production for export and essential services are caused by men being called up without regard to the availability of replacement.

Mr. Isaacs

Young men are retained in industry pending replacement in cases where, on the advice of the interested Government Department, this course is considered to be necessary.
