HC Deb 28 November 1944 vol 404 c2415W
Mr. Driberg

asked the Minister of Labour if, in the preparation of the booklet advising Service men on demobilisation and kindred matters, cognisance will be taken of the U.S. War Department Pamphlet No. 21–4, "Going back to Civilian Life," published on 9th March last; and if he will ensure that the British booklet will be at least as comprehensive and easy to understand as the American counterpart.

Mr. Bevin

The booklet which will shortly be issued to members of H.M. Forces while they are still serving, outlines the provisions which have been made for their resettlement on release. It will be supplemented by a pamphlet issued at the dispersal centres, containing instructions regarding the action which those released should take at that stage. The U.S. War Department pamphlet referred to in the Question is apparently designed to serve both purposes. It is intended that both the documents issued to members of H.M. Forces shall be comprehensive for their purpose and easy to understand.
