There are 302 ex-service men under notice of discharge in the Ministry of Health, due to curtailment of work and consequent reduction of staff. The recommendations in the Lytton Report have been carried out. With regard to the technical classes, I would refer to the answer given by me on Monday last to the hon. and gallant Member for Hertford (Rear-Admiral Sueter).
