HC Deb 05 August 1914 vol 65 cc1973-4W
Mr. F. HALL (Dulwich)

asked the Under-Secretary for War what steps the Government proposes to take with a view to assisting ex-service men on leaving the Army and Navy, having regard to the hardships they experience owing to the difficulty of finding civil employment after a long period of military or naval training and to the important bearing of the subject upon recruiting?


I cannot make a statement on this matter at the present moment. It has already been explained that a Committee is dealing with it, and its importance is fully recognised.
