asked the Minister of Labour what steps he has taken to implement the recommendations contained in the report of the Inter-departmental Committee on the Rehabilitation and Resettlement of Disabled Persons, Cmd. 6415, during the war; and what is the percentage of discharged ex-service men who have been reabsorbed into industry?

In reply to the first part of the Question I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to the hon. Member for Moss Side (Mr. Rostron Duckworth) on 23rd March. In reply to the second part, information is not available precisely in this form but a return obtained in January last showed that of the ex-Service men in receipt of disability pension for service in this war under 1.5 per cent, were registered as unemployed.
