§ 111. Mr. Low
asked the Minister of Labour why the arrangements he has made to enable students intending to enter a university in October, 1952, who will have been called up after October, 1950, to have three months early release, do not apply to students who have not sat for a scholarship examination.
§ Mr. Isaacs
The arrangements do apply to students who were too young to be called up before October, 1950, even though they do not sit for a scholarship examination. They do not apply to older students sitting a university entrance examination, because in their case the hardship caused by the extension of the period of National Service seems insufficient to justify such a concession.
