asked the Minister of Labour whether he is satisfied that the scheme for training disabled ex-service men, as proposed by the technical advisory panel at its meeting on 11th April last, is justifiable in view of the present state of the industry, and the considerable number of experienced ophthalmic optical workers at present unemployed; whether the period of training, as proposed, is sufficient to guarantee to the men so trained sufficient knowledge and experience to enable them to obtain employment in other workshops when their period of training is completed; and whether this particular industry offers sufficient prospects to justify the training of more men within it?
