Unemployed Soldiers. SPECIAL CONSUMPTION STORIES. MR. J. C. HENDERSON IN THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 March 1919

Osieipioged Soldiers. SPECIAL CONSUMPTION STORIES! MR. J. C. HENDERSON THE PRESS. .Mr. J. C. Henderson, Deputy Comptroller of j Repatriation, is credited by the Press with two I contradictory versions of the story of how the | employers honour their pledge to re-instate the returned soldiers. One version we find in the letter of Mr. Hen derson' addressed to* the Chamber of Manufac turers under, the date of 12th March, 1919. It reads as follows: — * 'I have officially and individually investiga ted a number of cases where employers, have been accused of not reinstating the returned men, and have the pleasure in advising that the result has been that these statements have no foundation in fact.' In the face of this categorical denial, Mr. Henderson's statement to the Press as pub lished in the 'Queensland Grazier,' 21st March, 1919, makes queer reading. It states: — 'Questioned as to the allegation that em ployers were dishonouring their pledge to re instate men, Mr. Henderson said th...

RAILWAYS AND REPATRIATION. (The Editor "Leader.") [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 March 1919

RAILWAYS AND REPATRIATION. (The Editor 'Leader.') Sir,* — Queensland possesses 5,316 miles of State-owned railways, or say one mile to every,1 36 adult males in the community. The railway service is run at a loss of over , one million sterling per annum, and year by year the loss increases with unfailing regular ity, so adult males have now to contribute each over £5 .per annum to keep the wheels moving. That the £5 must materially increase in the . near 'future appears inevitable, seeing that the most profitable line in- the State is receiving a staggering blow owing to the cost , of the pro duction of copper being now greater than its, value in the markets of the world. The State railways instead of being a source of revenue have become a drag, and a rapidly increasing drag, on the community. To check this jour ney on the road to ruin it is necessary that action should be taken in at least two direc tions . First, to purge from the service certain employees who are notoriously pre...

The Repatriation Department found him what they , considered a suitable position for . a returned 'Soldier — to wit, the position of cleaner in one of our Statu schools. This 'suitable position' included, amongst other duties, that of scrubbing floors, cleaning win dows, washing towels and dusters and scrub: bing closet seats, for which he received the munificent -remuneration of £1 16s. 10|d per week and, together with his wife, was able to earn between £3 2s. and £3 6s. weekly.

MORE THOUGHTLESS EXPENDITURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 March 1919

MORE THOUGHTLESS EXPENDITURE. Senator Millen's gift of £500,000 of taxpayers' money to the Various local government bodies is only another illustration of the wasteful me thods adopted by the Department of Repatria tion, being at the same time a weak-kneed ad mission of the Department's failure to provide for returned men. The number of unemployed on the' lis.ts of the Department is growing to an alarming ex tent. . It is the duty of repatriation to provide employment for our ex-soldiers and to create employment where none is available in the ex isting industries. Half a million pounds would finance a dojzen or so industrial concerns, creating permanent employment for hundreds of returned men, enabling them to marry and settle down in life as happy, contented . and prosperous citizens. But because our Depart ment of Repatriation lacks initiative and creative brains, the taxpayers' money, must be frittered away. The amount granted to eachc local govern ment body in Queensland is £374...

DEPARTMENT OF REPATRIATION. ENORMOUS COST OF ADMINISTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 March 1919

DEPARTMENT OF REPATRIATION. -ENORMOUS COST OF ADMINISTRATION. According to the booklet issued by the De partment of Repatriation and entitled: 'Nature and Scope of Assistance Rendered,' the' total disbursements to soldieus for the period of about seven months, or to be precise, from the 8th of April to the 31st of October, i ' ? ? r ? ? ? * ? 1918, amounted to £370,332. The. administra tive salaries and contingencies of the Depart ment, the State War Councils and Board of Trustees was £97,549 for the CQrresponding period. In other words, the administrative cost of repatriation equals 26 per cent, of the disburse ments to soldiers. ' ^ These .figures give food for thought and alarm, especially as they do not include any of the capital expenditure or £1000 grant to the R.S.S.I.L.A. We hear of £40,000,000 voted for repatriation, and we ask ourselves whether some £10,000,000 out of that amount will be poured into the bottomless well of oblivion, called by some^'The Administrative salari...

S. P. R. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 March 1919

S. P. R. How many men were sent away from the hos- pital portals of the Department of Repatriation with just three letters to stand them for food, clothing and a place to rest their weary bodies and hide their misery and despair? S.P.R.— 'suitable position refused'; these three letters marked on a soldier's registration card and sustenance and support are withdrawn from him. But the Department does not state that the 'suitable position' consists often of hard labour which the ex-soldier cannot perform, sometimes of selling artificial flowers in the streets and sometimes the 'position' offered to an applicant does not exist at all. In one case brought under our notice the returned soldier was sent to three different position, none of which existed, outside the imagination of the Department. And because he failed to accept any of the non-existing positions his sustenance was cut off. In another case ---------------, but this   letter speaks for itself. It is written in pe...
