§ 110. Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Minister of Munitions how many of the 300 women discharged from the Park Royal Cartridge Factory have been found employment?
§ Sir W. EVANS
One hundred and thirty-six women were discharged from the Park Royal Factory between the 14th and 16th December inclusive. Lists of all women under notice of discharge were sent to the Willesden Exchange, and the women were advised to apply to that Exchange for employment. Seventy-one women applied to the Willesden Exchange, and of these thirty-seven have actually started work at a neighbouring factory, and thirty-four will commence work on 28th December.
