HC Deb 30 January 1918 vol 101 cc1583-4W
Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Minister of Labour whether, other things being equal, he will decide to give a preference to a man discharged from the forces over one who has not served?


Steps are being taken to ensure that all possible facilities are provided for men discharged from the forces, and particularly those suffering from wounds and other disabilities. The question of a definite preference, in which of course, the co-operation of the employers and workers is essential, is one of some difficulty, but it is being considered in detail with the advisory committees of employers and workmen which have been set up to advise my Department.
