HC Deb 05 July 1950 vol 477 c27W
64. Miss Bacon

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that apprentices who decide to do their military training before completing their apprenticeship find, on completion of their training, that they are required to attend regularly at evening school, in addition to Territorial service; and if, in view of the strain imposed upon such youths, he will take steps to alleviate their position.

Mr. M. Stewart

It is not considered that the very small amount of evening training that a National Service man is required to undergo during part-time service is sufficient to interfere unduly with his civilian studies and I cannot agree to make exceptions in such cases.
