HC Deb 23 May 1938 vol 336 c868W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the decision of the Hampshire County Council that whenever vacancies of a non-technical character occur they shall be notified to the headquarters of the county regiment and to the National Association for the Employment of Ex-Regular Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen; and whether he can take steps to ensure that action on similar lines is taken by other county councils and large county boroughs throughout the country?

Mr. Elliot:

The reply to the first part of the question is in the negative. I am, however, considering whether action in the direction suggested in the second paragraph can usefully be taken.
