§ 125. Lieut.-Colonel Bromley-Davenport
asked the Minister of Works whether, in view of the fact that semi-skilled men from His Majesty's Forces are now being trained to fill the needs of the building industry, he will take steps to support the early release from the Forces of men who have served several years of apprenticeship in that trade prior to enlistment and whose release would he of material benefit to the advancement of the building programme.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
With the exception of a minority of the painters and carpenters, all skilled building trade workers, including apprentices, with at least 12 months service in the Forces have had the option of Class B release, subject only to Special Service needs.
