asked the Minister of Labour if he will investigate the case, details of which have been submitted to him, of a student admitted to the dental school of Guy's Hospital, London University, who is prevented from entering the school by regulations made by his Department which do not seem applicable to this case.

The man to whom the hon. Member refers is serving in the R.A.F. Medical and dental students are being released under the normal conditions of age and length of service, and after full consideration of the relevant circumstances, I see no grounds for making an exception in this case.

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will investigate with the view to release from service the case, details of which have been submitted to him, of a former undergraduate of King's College, London University, now performing clerical duties with the Army in India who gave up his studies to enlist three years ago and has been provisionally accepted as a medical student by Guy's Hospital if and when he can secure demobilisation.

I regret that I have been unable to trace the receipt of the details to which the hon. Member refers. If he will be good enough to furnish the regimental particulars of the soldier in question I will have inquiries made and inform him of the result.
