HC Deb 03 July 1918 vol 107 c1725
80. Captain CARR-GOMM

asked the Pensions Minister whether he will consider the advisability of substituting discharged and disabled soldiers and sailors who have the necessary qualifications for the girls and young women at present employed as clerks, messengers, etc., in his office whenever vacancies occur?


There is already a considerable number of discharged disabled men on the staff of the Ministry. My right hon. Friend is increasing this number gradually as opportunity arises and men with the necessary qualifications are available. We hope also to employ on our female staff a number of the dependants of officers and men who have fallen.
