§ 7. Mr. WING
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War what means the Government place at the disposal of workmen, such as miners, who were receiving compensation for accidents which were a disability for coal mining, yet did not affect their enlistment as soldiers, yet on return to civil life on discharge from the Army are refused pre-war conditions of compensation or light employment from their previous employers; and what remedy does the Government propose to provide to prevent the evasion of pre-war conditions and responsibilities?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Forster)
If the hon. Member will give me particulars of any case or cases he may have in mind, it will be easier to answer this question than in its present general form.
§ Mr. FORSTER
If my hon. Friend will give me a specific case I shall understand clearly what the difficulty is and I will do what I can to elucidate it.
