§ 71 Mr. WING
asked the Prime Minister if he is aware that insurance companies are refusing to accept responsibility for " accident insurance for returned wounded soldiers; and whether the Government will consider the advisability of setting up 1715 a Government Insurance Department so as to secure that soldiers do not suffer from unemployment because employers dare not accept the responsibility?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I have made some inquiries into this matter, but their results do not bear out the suggestion put forward in the first part of the question. But if my hon. Friend has any particular instances in mind, I should be much obliged if he would bring them to the notice of the Statutory Committee of the Royal Patriotic Fund Corporation. For the present, the second part of the question does not arise.
§ Mr. SUTTON
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that employers to-day are refusing to take back into their employ men who are partially incapacitated? Will he do something to alter that state of things after men have been fighting for their country?
