HC Deb 24 February 1921 vol 138 c1103

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he has issued a circular asking that each employé of the Ministry shall state whether he belongs to any ex-service men's organisation; whether he is willing to relinquish this connection; if not, what reasons actuate him; and whether, if the facts as stated are correct, he will inform the House of his motives in making this inquiry?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Mr. Macpherson)

I am not aware of the issue of any such circular. Membership of ex-service organisations is enjoyed by a large proportion of the male staff of the Ministry and is not in any way discouraged.
