§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I am informed that only one disabled officer is under notice of discharge, and every endeavour is being made to find him further employment, suited to his experience. I may add that no ex-service man, whether disabled or not, is discharged from the Air Ministry until his case has been considered by the Air Ministry Ex-Service Men's Employment Committee, on which a representative of the ex-service men sits. The suggstion that the claims of disabled officers are not given every possible consideration is quite unwarranted.
§ Mr. HOGGE
Is it not a fact that the recent appointments to the sectional directorships are held by men as stated in this question? Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there are a great many more than one disabled officer who have served throughout the War now being resigned from his Department?
