HC Deb 21 October 1971 vol 823 c155W
2. Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Minister of State for Defence whether he will seek to give instructions that volunteers for the armed Services whose applications to join are rejected should be informed of such rejections in a tactful and kindly manner.

Mr. Kirk

The Services are well aware of the need for tact and kindness when informing rejected applicants of their rejection. In general I am satisfied that their procedures reflect this need, but I am considering whether improvements can be made.
