asked the Minister of Labour whether he will relax regulations for release of students, so that men who volunteered for service in August, 1944, or earlier, but were not able to join their units till September, 1944, and who had previously won a scholarship at a university, should be released before 1st October, 1947.

No, Sir. The present arrangements for the release of students cover men in groups up to 62, and I could not agree to extend them in the manner suggested.
