§ Mr. Bellenger
asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many Ever-Readies have been called up for service; how many have failed to respond; and whether he will make a tabulated statement showing the reasons for failure to accept notice of call-up.
§ Mr. Mulley
182 members of the Territorial Army Emergency Reserve were called up for service. Of these eighteen appealed against service, two successfully, and four were found unfit for duty, leaving 176 who are at present serving overseas.
