§ 130. Mr. Low
asked the Secretary of State for War to how many men on the Class Z Reserve and other Army Reserves he is issuing warning notices of call-up for 15 days' service; how he is arranging to replace men released from call-up on hardship grounds; and what is the latest date on which any Reservist required to service for 15 days during 1951 will receive notification.
§ Mr. M. Stewart
The number of men on the Class Z Reserve to whom warning notices will be sent will not exceed the figure of 235,000 already announced. It is not intended to replace men exempted from call-up on hardship grounds. In reply to the last part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Penrith and The Border (Mr. Scott) on 6th February.
§ Mr. Llewellyn
asked the Secretary of State for War whether any persons in receipt of disability pensions who are on Class Z Reserve are liable for call-up this summer.
§ Mr. Strachey
Class Z reservists in receipt of disability awards are liable for recall for training, as it does not necessarily follow that a man in receipt of such an award is unfit for service. Reservists who are known to be below the required medical standard will not be recalled.
