§ 59. Colonel Wheatley
asked the Minister of Labour if he will give an 247W assurance that any interruption of the studies of a university student for service in the Forces or the mines will not exceed two academic years.
§ Mr. Isaacs
I assume that the hon. and gallant Member is referring to intending undergraduates who will be called up for a specified period under the arrangements announced in the recent White Paper. Provided the young men are available for call-up shortly after the end of the summer term at school, they will not be kept away from their studies for more than two academic years.
