asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether any cases have arisen in which proposals for deferment of calling up of civil servants have been considered excessive and have necessitated review by the Treasury, as indicated in the circular of 12th September, 1941, issued by the Treasury, in the light of the Report of the Committee under Lord Kennet; if so, the names of the Departments and the numbers of such cases in each Department?

No, Sir; but applications for the deferment of individual officers have been frequently modified or rejected by the Committee.
