HC Deb 07 October 1942 vol 383 cc1227-8W
Mr. Brooke

asked the Paymaster-General whether he is aware that men in the Forces now serving overseas are uncertain whether men serving at home will be given priority over them in demobilisation and return to civilian jobs when the war is over, to the detriment of their own chances of employment after being demobilised; and whether he can make any statement on the progress of the committee which is charged with laying plans for orderly demobilisation so as to minimise the risks of unemployment at that stage?

Sir W. Jowitt

I have just received the committee's report and I can assure my hon. Friend that in our consideration of it great importance will be attached to the matters to which he refers.
