asked the Minister of Labour whether, in appealing to employers to provide work for rehabilitated ex-soldiers, it is intended that they should, in return, release workpeople for the fighting Services?

No, Sir. I have not made an appeal in this form. It is, of course, always necessary for me to take account of the total staff employed by a firm and it may happen also that a rehabilitated ex-Service man is a suitable substitute for a man due to be called up; but that is a different matter altogether.
