HC Deb 22 January 1918 vol 101 c808
57. Mr. HOGGE

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he proposes to take any steps to overcome the difficulty of discharged disabled men securing employment owing to the reluctance of employers to employ them under the Workmen's Compensation Act; and whether any changes are proposed in that legislation?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. The matter referred to is under consideration between the Home Office and the Ministry of Pensions, and I am not at present in a position to make any statement.
