§ Mr. HUDSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention had been called to the number of dismissals from several grades of the staff by the London underground electric tube railway companies; whether the Camden Town Labour Exchange had been and was still used as a means of advertisement for ex-soldiers who had been discharged not more than six weeks from the Army to fill the places of the ordinary men dismissed; and what action, if any, he proposed to take in the matter?
I have no knowledge of the dismissals from the London underground electric tube railway companies referred to by the hon. Member. The demand for ex-soldiers exhibited by the Camden Town Labour Exchange was in connection with temporary additional 9 porters required by another railway company for Easter holiday traffic, and had nothing to do with the tube railway companies.
