HC Deb 07 July 1955 vol 543 cc116-7W
69. Mr. Holman

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air why Bryan Robin, 49, Lauriston Road, London, E.9, and some 30 other young men, received call-up notices and were ordered to report to the Royal Air Force Centre, 233, High Road, Ilford, on 4th July and, on arrival, they were informed that a mistake had been made and were told to sign on again for work at the employment exchange.

Mr. Ward

This young man volunteered for Regular service and was provisionally accepted. In company with six other volunteers, he reported at Ilford Recruiting Centre on 4th July preparatory to enlistment. After arrival at the Recruiting Centre, Robin and one other candidate withdrew their applications for Regular service and therefore returned home to await call-up under the National Service Acts.
