TRIBUTE TO MINISTER
INTERESTS OF DISABLED During his statement on the vocational training centre at the deputation to the Mayor, Mr. Allum, in the City Council chambers on Monday, Mr. Theo Browne, president of the War Ambutees' Association, made a detailed gummary of the negotiations stretching over the years since early 1942. He spoke of the assurances of speedy completion given by the former Minister of Rehabilitation, Mr. Semple, in May, 1943, and also of the later promises made by his successor, Mr. Skinner. Mr. Browne paid a tribute to the whole-hearted interest of the present Minister in the welfare and after-care of disabled servicemen. He (Mr. Browne) said he was quite certain that the delay and disappointment that had occurred in regard to Auckland's centre were due to influence beyond the control of Mr. Skinner, whom lie had always found most anxious and ready to listen to the representatives of the Amputees' Association. They realised that he had undertaken a great task in rehabilitation, but he was throwing all his energy, ability and enthusiasm into his job.
