§ 28. Mr. HOGGE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the employés of registered plumbers are starred; whether he is aware that many such are engaged on sanitary work rendered necessary by medical officers of health condemning insanitary arrangements contributing to the destruction of public health; whether in case of diphtheria and typhoid such work is urgent; and whether such considerations must be taken into account by tribunals when employers are asking for exemptions for employés.
§ Mr. PRETYMAN
The question of reserving plumbers from recruiting is under consideration, and the Reserved Occupations Committee are receiving a deputation from the Master Plumbers' Association to-morrow.
