§ 12. Commander Prior
asked the Minister of Labour why men in Category B for demobilisation are granted 21 days' pay in view of the Government's policy that all men honourably discharged were to be given 56 days' pay.
§ Mr. Butler
As stated in the White Paper, it is essential to the scheme that there should be a clearly marked difference in the treatment of the men released in Class A in their turn, and of the men released in Class B out of their turn. The latter will have definite employment to which to go, whereas men released in Class A must be given time for resettlement and to secure suitable employment if necessary.
