HC Deb 30 May 1962 vol 660 c121W
9. Mr. Charles A. Howell

asked the Secretary of State for War how many Territorials, both male and female, have been refused permission to attend training courses this year to date; what representations he has made to their employers; and if he will give a list of the firms concerned.

Mr. Profumo

I am not aware of any cases where members of the Territorial Army have been refused permission to fulfil their annual training this year. It does happen from time to time that a date fixed for a man to go to camp does not suit his employer, but with goodwill on both sides it is usually possible to make alternative arrangements.
