HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 c959W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the case of Mr. G. S. Beer, late sergeant, No. 02748, Royal Army Ordnance Corps, a disabled soldier, who has applied through the local war pensions committee to be accepted for training in the business of market gardening under Mr. W. R. Pierce, F.R.H.S., of Canterbury, who has signified his willingness to give him such training; and whether, having regard to the fact that Beer has been medically advised to obtain outdoor in preference to indoor employment, his application will be sanctioned and furthered by the Board of Agriculture?


Sanction was given by the Board on the 8th inst. for Mr. Beer to be trained under Mr. Pierce, of Canterbury, and I am advised that he began his training on the 13th inst.
