asked the Minister of Pensions whether, when members of the Fighting Forces are discharged from his care as no longer capable of service, they are put in touch with any organisation which may train them for post-war life; and whether he will adopt such an organised policy, carried out progressively, to simplify replacement in civil life after the war?

A scheme for the training and resettlement of disabled persons has been put into operation by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour and National Service, full particulars of which are given in a pamphlet issued by his Department. Contact is made by one of his officers with a disabled member of the Forces and the doctor or surgeon in charge of the case while the patient is still in hospital and before his discharge from the Forces.
