HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 cc957-8W

asked the Minister of Labour whether all Government Departments are employing a percentage of disabled men in accordance with the King's Proclamation; if not, which Departments are not acting in compliance and whether any steps are being taken to bring these Departments into line?


I understand that Government Departments as a whole are at present employing considerably more than five per cent, of disabled ex-Servicemen. The present arrangements are necessarily to some extent of an interim nature owing to the fact that the staffs of Government Departments are much above the normal, but the nature of the permanent arrangements to be made for employing disabled ex-Service men in Government Departments is being carefully considered in consultation with the Treasury
