HC Deb 02 March 1920 vol 126 cc271-2W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions what arrangements have been made concerning the contemplated discharges of disabled men at Woolwich Arsenal, including also those of men who have previously served in His Majesty's forces and are now also engaged at the Arsenal?


A Committee representing the disabled ex-service men in the Ministry Establishments at Woolwich Arsenal has been formed, and it is intended that when discharges of such men appear to be necessary that officials of the Ministry at Woolwich will consult the disabled ex-service men's Committee before any action is taken. The Prime Minister has given instructions that officials responsible for the War Office and Admiralty portions of the Arsenal shall be associated with the Ministry of Munitions' officials, so that uniformity of action may be secured.
