HC Deb 01 February 1961 vol 633 cc131-2W
92. Mrs. Braddock

asked the Secretary of State for War why National Service men are having their service shortened by up to three months; and whether this concession applies to the Brigade of Guards.

Mr. Profumo:

The reasons for the premature release of certain categories of National Service men were given in my hon. Friend's Answer to a Question by the hon. Member for Erith and Cray-ford (Mr. Dodds) on 25th January, 1961. No National Service men now serving in the Brigade of Guards are affected.
