§ 57. Mr. Thorne
asked the Minister of Labour whether he has considered an application from the Excel Company, Limited, John Street, West Smithfield, for a man by the name of Smith, of 188, Chadwell Heath Lane; and what he intends doing about the matter.
§ The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour (Mr. Tomlinson)
My Department have consulted the Ministry of Food on this matter and my right hon. Friend is not prepared to agree to the transfer of Mr. Smith to Excel Company, Limited. There are more urgent vacancies in the breadmaking industry for which Mr. Smith should be submitted if he leaves his present employment.
