HC Deb 28 November 1973 vol 865 cc167-8W
Mr. Boyden

asked the Minister of State for Defence what new measures he is considering to assist Service men in nontechnical arms, on release from the Services, to obtain satisfactory employment.

Mr. Ian Gilmour

I have at present no plans to extend the schemes operated by the Ministry of Defence for giving resettlement advice and training ; but the Training Opportunities Scheme recently introduced by the Department of Employment is likely to be of particular benefit to Service men. Placing discharged Service men in civil employment is the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment.
