§ 134. Mr. Janner
asked the Minister of Labour whether arrangements will be made for special priority to be given to the supply and repair of spectacles for those whose work is impeded as a result of their loss or breakage; and whether he is yet in a position to state when he anticipates the labour position with regard to optical repairs will be restored to normal.
§ Mr. Isaacs:
Any arrangements of the kind suggested would not be practicable in view of the fact that the work of most people is impeded by the loss or breakage of their spectacles. My officers are doing everything possible to meet the labour requirements of optical repairers, but I am unable to say when these requirements will be met in full.
