HC Deb 21 October 1920 vol 133 cc1109-10W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the War Office how many men of the Regular Army are employed at the Royal Army Ordnance depot at Chilwell; and whether he has received a protest from the Nottingham employment committee against the employment of these men while there are 2,000 ex-service men in the Nottingham area unable to obtain employment?


There are 62 men of the Royal Army Ordnance Corps employed at the Ordnance depot, Chilwell. These men form part of the military establishment of the depot. A copy of a resolution from the Nottingham employment committee has been received, but I regret that it is impracticable to take the action suggested.
