HC Deb 11 March 1924 vol 170 cc2166-7W

asked the Postmaster-General, in view of the large number of disabled ex-service trainees in the electrical industry who are unemployed and the difficulty experienced by the Industrial Training Department of the Ministry of Labour in placing these men, whether he can see his way to give preference to ex-service trainees in any vacancies that may arise?


Preference for employment in the Post Office Engineering Department is given, as far as practicable, to disabled ex-service men trained in Government instructional factories, but the number of such men who can be provided for is limited, as openings are available only for men qualified in certain branches of electrical work.
