§ 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.
