HC Deb 18 February 1920 vol 125 cc931-2W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions if he can make any statement as to the discharges from Woolwich Arsenal; and whether any disabled ex-soldiers or sailors are now being discharged?


In answer to the first part of the question, so far as the Ministry of Munitions is concerned, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. Member for Wednesbury on the 12th February. With regard to the latter part of the question, a number of disabled ex-service men were under notice of discharge, but as a result of representations on their behalf it has been decided to suspend these notices for one fortnight pending a final decision.
