Yes, Sir. It is contemplated that arrangements should be made between the British Government and the Government of the Irish Free State for the continuance of the special assistance at present afforded through various Government Departments to ex-service men in connection with industrial training, the obtaining of employment, land settlement, and housing.

Colonel NEWMAN:

Would it not be possible to help these men to emigrate overseas?
