There are of military age in the employment of the London Passenger Transport Board 7,690 drivers, 865 conductors and 819 washers and general hands on road vehicles; the Board have not applied for the deferment of the calling-up of conductors, washers and general hands. So far as the Board is aware, none of the men in any of these classes are Army reservists receiving reserve pay.
I think that the hon. Member misunderstood my answer. I said in regard to conductors that no deferment has been asked for. Some of those for whom deferment has not been asked have not been called up either because they are medically unfit or because the military work to which they were assigned was not required at the moment.
