HC Deb 05 March 1919 vol 113 cc380-1
42. Mr. F. ROBERTS

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he was aware that between 400 and 500 German prisoners are being employed on the manufacture of cement blocks at Chepstow; that the making of these blocks is plasterers' work, a large number of whom are at present unemployed; and whether, in view of this, he will take steps to have these German, prisoners removed from this work so that civilian plasterers may find employment?
