Reserved Occupations (Ex-Service Men).

Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort. – in the House of Commons on 12th March 1942.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. David Adams:

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that there is a widespread desire on the part of suitable ex-Service men in reserved occupations to serve in the Fighting Services; and whether, as much of their work was done by women during the last war, consideration is being given to this proposal?

I am not aware of any widespread desire of this sort, but where such desire is expressed there are arrangements under which in many cases effect can be given to it.

Mr. Adams:

Is the Minister aware that there is a widespread demand for this?
