§ 48. Colonel YATE
asked the Prime Minister whether, considering the anxiety prevailing on the subject of employment, which militates against recruiting, he will take steps to secure a public assurance that all men enlisting for general service will be reinstated in their former positions on the conclusion of the War?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The Government and a large number of employers have already given this assurance to men enlisting with leave from their service. I hope that this will be done wherever possible, but I am not in a position to give an assurance that would be binding in all cases.
§ Colonel YATE
Will the right hon. Gentleman publish that reply, so that all employers in the country may have that encouragement?
