asked the Minister of Agriculture if, in view of the food shortage, he will expedite the release under Class B, of 1142864 Gunner G. H Mells, Doddington Camp, near Nantwich, Cheshire, details of whose case were sent to him on 12th February, and who is due to return to his unit on 7th March; and whether he will ensure that all such applications are, in present circumstances, dealt with quickly by his Department.

Mr. Collick

After local investigation of the circumstances, a recommendation has been made by my Department to the appropriate authorities for Gunner Mells release under the Class B individual specialist scheme. The answer to the last part of the hon. Member's Question is in the affirmative.
