HC Deb 24 November 1926 vol 200 c431W

asked the Minister of Labour how many ex-service men have been trained in civil pursuits under courses provided by his Department within the last two years; how many of these men have obtained employment on the completion of their training; how many have failed to obtain it in consequence of trade union difficulties; and will he indicate what these difficulties mainly are and with which unions they have principally arisen?


During the two years ended 31st October, 1926, 8,657 disabled ex-service men completed a course of training under the industrial training scheme. The great majority are believed to have obtained employment. I have no information that recently any difficulties as to their employment have arisen with trade unions.
