LONDON  (From Our Regular Correspondent)May 19, 1945.

The British Council of Rehabilitation  As shown in previous letters to The Journal, war injuries have led to the concentration of attention on the problem of rehabilitation. A British Council of Rehabilitation has been established (1) to act as a coordinating center for the various interests concerned in the widest aspects of rehabilitation, (2) to promote and correlate courses of study, (3) to invite the active cooperation of government departments, hospitals, universities, training colleges, educational institutions and research foundations in promoting the study and practice of rehabilitation, (4) to secure the active cooperation and participation of commerce, industry and professional bodies in the problems of resettlement, (5) to encourage the formation of follow-up schemes for the rehabilitated and (6) to consider, promote or oppose legislation which may affect the interests of the disabled and to make such representations as may be desirable.
