HC Deb 13 January 1916 vol 77 c1751

asked the Minister of Munitions whether, in view of the destruction of munition works in the United States by incendiarism and the number of persons killed and injured thereby, he can state how many aliens are at present employed in munition factories, controlled or otherwise, in this country; and what are the conditions and safeguards made in connection with their employment?


The matter referred to by my horn Friend has not been lost sight of. I do not think, however, that it would be in the public interest to state the nature of the precautions taken, and I am not in a position to state the number of aliens employed in munition factories, but I can assure my hon. Friend that great care is being exercised in this matter.
