HC Deb 23 November 1943 vol 393 c1453W
Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Minister of Labour whether all the members of the welfare staff of his Department have undergone training in welfare work and under what circumstances?

Mr. Bevin

The members of the welfare staff had not all had specific training in welfare work before their entry to my Department, but all were specially chosen by impartial selection panels who regarded them as qualified by previous experience and personality to perform satisfactorily the duties appropriate to welfare officers in my Department.
