HC Deb 19 February 1920 vol 125 c1081W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that a large number of disabled soldiers have been or are about to be discharged from Woolwich Arsenal; and whether, in view of the sacrifices these men have made, he will reconsider the question with a view to the withdrawal of these discharges or the provision of some other employment?


No disabled soldiers are being discharged from establishments under the War Department at Woolwich Arsenal. If the hon. Member has in his mind Departments under the Ministry of Munitions, I would refer him to the reply given yesterday by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry in answer to the hon. Member for West Woolwich.
