§ 55. Mr. Swingler
asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that many errors have been made in the notices and letters about call-up for Z Reserve training sent by his Department to Mr. G. V. Hawkins, 132, Lincoln Avenue, Newcastle-under-Lyme; and if he will post-pone further action until he is sure that this is not a case of mistaken identity.
§ 56. Brigadier Prior-Palmer
asked the Secretary of State for War what is the purpose of the new form, Army D 406 (RO) which a number of Army Z reservists have been receiving from Record Offices.
§ Mr. Head
Class Z and similar reservists are subject before recall to occupational screening by the Ministry of Labour and National Service. This screening started in August, 1950, and since that time many reservists will have changed their jobs and some will have obtained new qualifications. It has therefore been decided that all these reservists should be re-screened; and that is why this new form, containing a revised questionnaire, is being sent out.12W
§ Mr. Swingler
asked the Secretary of State for War to what extent, in the selection of Z reservists for call-up, he takes into account Territorial Army service before 1939.
