HC Deb 08 November 1916 vol 87 c183

asked the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the fact that many educated and experienced men either permanently incapacitated for further service in the Navy or Army or over military age are seeking suitable employment either in the public services or elsewhere, the Man-Power Board will consider the establishment of a special employment bureau to deal with such men in order to set free other men for fighting service, and also to prevent waste of the national brain power in inferior employments?

The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Chamberlain)

The Man-Power Distribution Board have already had this suggestion under consideration, and they have ascertained that the Board of Trade have established a Department, called the Professional Classes War Service Register, for dealing with the matter. The address of the Department is Queen Anne's Chambers, S.W.
