§ Mr. T. Macpherson
asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware of the difficulty which exists in overseas units in obtaining copies of the form E.D. 653A, being application for further educational training; and if he will arrange for supplies to be made available to all units, especially in the M.E.F.
§ Mr. Lawson:
Printed Forms ED 653A are not required from Members of His Majesty's Forces serving overseas who wish to be considered for awards under the Government's Further Education and Training Scheme. Applications are made on Forms ED 653A prepared locally in accordance with a specimen shown in the Appendix to Army Council Instruction 156 of 1946, which has been circulated down to Companies, Batteries, and equivalent units.
