HC Deb 17 July 1918 vol 108 c1049
63. Mr. WILKIE

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will do his utmost to find suitable British labour for the road work upon which Chinese seamen are now engaged at Edzell; and whether, when such labour is available, he will urge upon the Department responsible the necessity for terminating the employment of the Chinese?

The MINISTER of LABOUR (Mr. G. Roberts)

I understand that the Road Board have arranged to transfer the Chinese seamen from the work at Edzell, as there is a prospect that British labour can now be found to take their place.
