§ 45. Mr. Symonds
asked the Minister of Labour if he will consider including German women among the aliens allowed to enter this country on a temporary basis as domestic workers in such cases where they have relatives in this country who need temporary domestic help, otherwise unobtainable, at times of confinement, illness, etc.
§ The Minister of Labour (Mr. Isaacs)
Under existing arrangements permits are not granted for German women to come to this country for domestic employment, and I do not feel that an exception can be made in these cases.
§ Mr. Symonds
Can the Minister say why, if these women are known to be anti-Nazi, there should be any objection to their coming to this country?
§ Mr. Isaacs
I would not like to state all the reasons, but there are some who have suffered from Nazism to whom we are giving preference.
