asked the Secretary to the Local Government Board if the Government have formed, or have the intention of forming, any official Employment Committee to assist soldiers discharged from the Service through wonnds or sickness to obtain work; and if he will consider the desirability of such a step in the interest of the ratepayers?


The duty of making provision for the training and employment of disabled officers and men has been placed upon the Statutory Committee established under the Naval and Military War Pensions, etc., Act of last Session, which also provides that the Statutory Committee shall appoint a special Sub-Committee for the purpose. The constitution of the Sub-Committee is now under consideration, and it is expected that it will be appointed shortly.
