HC Deb 22 October 1946 vol 427 c351W
Mr. Callaghan

asked the Minister of Labour whether Class B release for schoolteachers has been suspended, or what is the lowest group offered release.

Mr. Ness Edwards

The scheme under which school teachers have been released from the Forces in Class B has not yet been suspended although it has largely fulfilled its purpose. Virtually all men identified as teachers by the Education Departments have been offered release in Class B provided they have served not less than 12 months in the Forces and can be spared from their military duties.
