asked the Minister of Labour whether he is satisfied that young men called up out of industry are being replaced by the release of men from the services.

The calling up of men from industry cannot, of course, be dependent upon individual replacement by men released from the Forces; but the number of young men being called up is very much smaller than the number of men being released.

Is the Minister not aware of the great dislocation caused particularly in a place like Sheffield, where there are many complaints that the calling up of young men is hindering production?

The process must continue to some extent because the young men must go into the Forces to take the places of the older men who are being released.
