§ Mr. Wood
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the total and the percentage of disabled ex-Service men employed in all Government Departments in 1939 under the King's Roll National 35W Scheme and the percentage of registered-disabled persons, comprising ex-Service men and civilians, employed in Government Departments at the latest available date; and whether he will publish figures -showing the position for each Department.
§ Mr. Jay
The number of disabled ex-Service men employed by Government Departments under the King's Roll scheme on 1st April, 1939, was 54,564 or 8.3 per cent. of the total staff (industrial and non-industrial) employed on that date. The latest information about the percentage of registered disabled persons in Government employment is given in Cmd. 7848. I am sending the hon. Member a statement of the numbers in the larger Departments individually.
