HC Deb 13 December 1950 vol 482 c161W
48. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Defence what steps he is taking to ensure that Communists called up for His Majesty's Forces are not given positions of trust and responsibility nor employed on educational tasks.

Mr. Shinwell

As regards the general policy, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Gosport and Fareham (Surgeon Lieut.-Commander Bennett) on 26th July. This policy extends to the educational services.
