§ 55. General McCALMONT
asked the Minister of Reconstruction whether he is aware that numbers of Army officers are now being returned to civil life as being over age for active military duty; whether the Officers' Resettlement Committee, in conjunction with the Ministry of Labour, is prepared to deal with such cases; and, if so, whether steps will be taken to ensure that such officers who require employment shall be fully informed as to the steps they should take in order to avail themselves of this arrangement?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY Of LABOUR(Mr. Bridgeman)
I have been asked to answer this question. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour is aware of the circumstances mentioned in the first part of the question. Arrangements are now being made on the lines proposed by the Officers' Resettlement Committee to assist ex-officers upon their return to civil life, and steps are being taken to bring these arrangements to the notice of the officers concerned.
