§ 29. Mr. M. Lindsay
asked the Secretary of State for War why Class A tradesmen in the Royal Signals in Group 48, who have already served 42 years, are having their demobilisation deferred.
§ Mr. Bellenger
Group 48 is due to be released between 27th March and 21st April. No compulsory deferments, there- 33W fore, can yet have been authorised. I hope that there will be no need for such deferments in Group 48.
