§ 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, 381 in view of this, he will take steps to have these German, prisoners removed from this work so that civilian plasterers may find employment?
§ Sir R. HORNE
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question, and I am accordingly having inquiries made into the matter, and as soon as these are complete I will communicate with my hon. Friend.
