Mr. Applications are not being centrally recorded, although the number of volunteers who actually train will later be available. It is known, however, that up to the 22nd of last month some 75 officers and 200 other ranks had volunteered for this further training.
§ Nigel Nicolson
109. Mr. asked the Secretary of State for War if he will exempt from Class Z training volunteers for the rescue sections of the Civil Defence Corps who have passed the age of forty.
The reserve liability of these men overrides their undertaking for part-time service in Civil Defence and it is necessary to recall some of them, in the same way as other reservists, up to the age of 45 for training this year.
