HC Deb 26 June 1930 vol 240 c1322
4. Captain P. MACDONALD

asked the Minister of Labour what number of employers, and what number of ex-Service men employed by them, were on the King's Roll on 31st December, 1928 and 1929, and on 1st June, 1930, respectively?


The number of employers enrolled on the King's National Roll in December, 1928, was 27,232; in December, 1929, 26,709; and in March, 1930, 26,641. The numbers of disabled ex-Service men employed by those firms at the corresponding dates were 382,290, 375,326 and 375,173. The figures for June, 1930, are not yet available.


Can the right hon. Lady say that when employment is found preference is given to ex-Service men?


I think that these figures show that the King's Roll Committee have done extraordinarily good work and that they are continuing in that work and will continue to deal with the matter.
