asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what notice is given of the actual date of their release to men due for demobilisation.

Forecasts of probable dispersal dates for specified age and service groups are given to the Fleet about three months before the dispersal period for these groups begins. This period extends over approximately two months. The forecasts are confirmed about ten days before the dispersal begins. The actual date upon which a man in the groups due" for release is dispersed depends upon the drafting situation and upon local conditions.

Can the Minister give an assurance that every possible attempt is made to warn a man of his release?
