HC Deb 12 December 1962 vol 669 cc73-4W
86. Mr. F. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for War why Rodney Bell, whose application to join the Duke of Lancaster's Yeomanry was approved by his unit commander in November, 1961, has had to wait a year before being informed that he must attend a Territorial Officers Selection Board.

Mr. Profumo

The delay in submitting Mr. Bell's application for a commission in the Territorial Army was due to a series of misunderstandings on the part of Mr. Bell and the Duke of Lancaster's Yeomanry about the completion of certain forms and about Mr. Bell's status as a reservist.
