asked the Minister of Labour whether he proposes to take steps to impose an age limit where none yet exists to qualify for tribunal deferment from any form of war service?

I have under consideration the question of raising in a number of occupations the age limit below which deferment may not be granted and of imposing such an age limit in a number of other occupations.

Could the Minister say when he expects to come to a decision on this matter?
