As I informed the hon. Member for Maldon (Mr. Driberg) last Wednesday, there is no question of reopening the general scheme.

Steps are, however, being taken by the Service Departments to bring to the notice of all ranks that ex-miners who were debarred from applying for release from the Forces to return to the mines under last year's scheme because they were then serving in the Korean theatre may apply for release for this purpose on completion of their service in Korea.
