HC Deb 25 April 1917 vol 92 c2418W

asked the Pensions Minister what steps, if any, have been taken to stimulate action between local war pensions committees for the purpose of training disabled soldiers and sailors?


My colleague the Parliamentary Secretary and myself have held meetings of representatives of local war pensions committees and heads of training institutions in various parts of the United Kingdom and have received most satisfactory promises of co-operation in schemes for making available the best training facilities in large areas to all the local committees working in those areas. We are now in consultation with the Statutory Committee, adopting their inspection organisation to ensure early practical effect being given to those schemes.
