HC Deb 05 March 1931 vol 249 cc557-8
11. Lieut.-Colonel Sir FREDERICK HALL

asked the Minister of Labour whether any aliens are at present employed in trades in this country in which there are persons who are unemployed and in receipt of unemployment benefit; and, if so, the number of aliens so employed?

machinists and finishers for ladies' coats. On the same day two finishers were sent by the Exchange to this firm and were engaged. A finisher sent on the following day had her submission card endorsed "Vacancy filled." Two machinists were submitted, one on 4th February and one on the 9th; neither was accepted, one because she was too old, the other because she was not sufficiently experienced.


Will the right hon. Lady use her influence to see that all vacancies are filled as far as possible by unemployed persons?


That is done.
