§ 28. Sir HENRY HARRIS
asked the Pensions Minister when it is proposed to transfer the training of disabled men to the Ministry of Labour; whether legislation will be required in order to give effect to the transfer; and whether local war pensions committees and joint disablement committees will shortly receive some communication on the subject?
§ Sir J. CRAIG
The transfer of industrial training to the Ministry of Labour will be carried out as soon as that Department have completed their arrangements for its administration. Legislation, as my right hon. Friend is advised, is not necessary to give effect to the transfer. The general terms of transfer have been arranged between the two Departments, and an announcement is now being sent to local committees.
