§ Mr. Lipson
asked the Secretary of State for War if embarkation leave is always given to youths of 19 years of age or under before they are sent overseas to take part in the invasion of Europe.
§ Sir J. Grigg
All soldiers, whatever their age, are, if possible, given embarkation leave. Sometimes it is not possible owing to a special need for secrecy or for some other overriding operational reason.
