HC Deb 26 May 1932 vol 266 cc518-9

asked the Minister of Labour if he is satisfied with the present result of the efforts of the King's National Roll Committee in finding employment for disabled ex-service men; and whether he will consider the advisability of appointing a limited number of the disabled to interview employers of labour so as to secure better results?


I am never satisfied, particularly in a matter of this sort, but I think the King's Roll National Council and the local King's Roll Committees have done, and are doing, very valuable work. The percentage of unemployment among disabled ex-service men is, I may say, less than half that among insured men generally. As regards the second part of the question, it is the business of the local King's Roll Committee to suggest the best method of enlisting the support of employers in its particular area.
