asked the Secretary of State for War why 14385263, Private Pullinger, A., 47th Division Battle School, with 22 years'experience in the building trade, including five years as foreman bricklayer, has recently been employed as a batman; and whether he will now be released to resume building.

Will the right hon. Gentleman supply information as to when this soldier joined the Forces, and his age and length of service?

This man was in a very late release group because he was indefinitely held at home for particular purposes.

Will the right hon. Gentleman see to it that this trade of officer's batman is abolished altogether?

Was this man released because he was a batman, or because he was a builder?

As there seems to be some interest in this matter, will the right hon. Gentleman tell me when he is ready to give an answer, and I will then put down the Question again?
