HC Deb 14 March 1922 vol 151 c1983W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether there is to be any safeguard of the employment of ex-service men temporarily employed in the Irish prison service; and whether he is aware that the condition under which they were employed was that they were ex-service men?


I do not fully understand the hon. Member's question. If he desires to know whether any guarantee of continued employment can be given to the men to whom he refers, the answer is in the negative: the essence of a temporary engagement is the absence of any such guarantee.
