HC Deb 09 July 1947 vol 439 cc225-6W
Mr. Gammons

asked the Minister of Defence if he is yet in a position to make a further statement on the removal of any restrictions on the enlistment into the Royal Navy and the Army of British subjects of non-European descent.

Mr. Alexander

No. As I indicated in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Maldon (Mr. Driberg) on 4th June, all the Services are now open to all British subjects on an equal basis and irrespective of descent.
