§ 85. Mr. CAPE
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the large number of ex-Service men who are unable to obtain employment; whether his Department are taking any steps calculated to find these men remunerative employment; whether he is in communication with local authorities with a view to the provision of work of a public character which would provide employment; and whether he will state what action, if any, is contemplated in this matter?
§ Sir R. HORNE
All steps possible to secure the employment of ex-Service men are being taken. If the hon. Gentleman would care to discuss the matter in detail, I should be glad to arrange for an interview with the responsible officers of the Department.
§ Sir F. LOWE
Has any further number of these men been placed in employment since the right hon. Gentleman last answered a question on the subject?
