HC Deb 09 April 1918 vol 104 cc1318-9
23. Captain SHEEHAN

asked the Minister of Labour what steps are being taken in Ireland to deal with the problem of labour re-settlement there after the War; whether it is proposed to set up any special machinery to deal with the separate conditions which prevail in that country; and generally can he state the proposals for the prompt resettlement of Irish soldiers and sailors who have voluntarily given their services in the War?

The MINISTER of LABOUR (Mr. Roberts)

I am not at present in a position to make a detailed statement on this point, but I may say generally that the proposals with regard to re-settlement of ex-Service men will apply to Irish sailors and soldiers in the same way as to men enlisted from Great Britain.


When may we hope for a detailed statement?


I hope to be able to announce it in due course.
