HC Deb 27 February 1951 vol 484 cc266-7W
22. Mr. W. Wells

asked the Secretary of State for War what further steps he proposes to take with regard to Class Z reservists who have failed to answer communications addressed to them from his Department.

Mr. Strachey

Class Z reservists who failed to complete the first questionnaire regarding their occupation were sent a further form by registered post. If they failed to complete and return this, they are regarded as available for recall whatever their occupation might be. No legal action can be taken against a Z reservist until and unless he fails to comply with a notice to join.

28. Mr. Frederic Harris

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is in a position to make a statement regarding the length of service of Class B reservists now serving in Korea.

Mr. Strachey

I would refer the hon. Member to the statement by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Defence on 14th February.
