HC Deb 18 April 1946 vol 421 c482W
55. Major N. Macpherson

asked the Minister of Labour, for what reason G. Morrison, of Haldene, Annan Road, Dumfries, an engineering student at Edinburgh University, after being notified on 10th October 1945 that he would be called up and having discontinued his university course in consequence, did not receive a calling-up notice until 7th April 1946.

Mr. Ness Edwards:

My present information does not confirm the statement made by the hon. Member. As to the date on which this student was told that he would be called up, I will write to the hon. Member as soon as I receive a full report.

56. Major N. Macpherson

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will now permit university students to complete their courses even although they fail in an examination, provided that they pass the examination at the second attempt before receiving their calling-up notice.

Mr. Ness Edwards:

My right hon. Friend is already considering the suggestion contained in the hon. Member's Question.
