asked the Minister of Labour what system is adopted to select staff for the Ministry of Labour Resettlement Bureaux; and if there is any scheme of training that personnel filling these posts have to undergo.

The bulk of the staff in Resettlement Advice Offices were selected from permanent and temporary staff in my Department. The selected officers are experienced in public interviewing, welfare and similar work. Some appointments were also made from outside the Department and consisted of ex-Service men and women and others with a background of social work or social administration. All officers allocated to Resettlement Advice Offices have been given an intensive course of training, and further training is being arranged.
