§ 40. Mr. Sandys
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether His Majesty's Government will consider reserving a larger proportion of vacancies in the Post Office and other Government departments for members of the armed forces upon the completion of their service?
§ The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Lieut.-Colonel Colville)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by the Prime Minister on 7th December last to the hon. and gallant Member for Wycombe (Sir A. Knox), of which I am 336 sending him a copy, which indicated that the whole matter is being specially considered.
Will the right hon. and gallant member keep in mind the thousands of ex-Service men who are already walking the streets?
§ Lieut.-Colonel Colville
All the relevant facts will be kept in mind in connection with the inquiry.
