asked the Secretary of State for War if he will defer the call up of Class Z reservists who are engaged in farming operations until after the ploughing and sowing on the farms.

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given by my hon. Friend to the hon. Member for Abingdon (Sir R. Glyn) on 19th April.


asked the Secretary of State for War why Mr. E. C. Lockwood, 141, Balby Road, Doncaster, has been refused deferment of service under the Class Z reserve call up, in view of the fact that he has a one-man business which will have to be closed during his period of training; and if he is aware that deferment or exemption has been granted in many similar cases.

I should be grateful if my hon. Friend would let me know Mr. Lockwood's regimental number, rank and regiment or corps in order that I can look into this case.
