HC Deb 14 February 1951 vol 484 cc73-4W
120. Mr. F. Harris

asked the Secretary of State for Air why notice of his impending call-up for 15 days' training under Class G Reserve has been sent by Royal Air Force Records, Gloucester, in their letter of 5th February, Ref. 9 DIV./2/41640 to Mr. L. W. O'Brien, 60 Green Lane, Thornton Heath, considering he will be 43 years of age in May and was in trade group, clerk SD.

Mr. A. Henderson

A notice of impending call-up was sent to Mr. O'Brien because he is in a trade group for whose members some refresher training is considered to be essential in the national interest. I am afraid that it has been necessary to include in the call-up for this trade, a small number of men over 40, as the numbers available fur call-up are very limited.
