HC Deb 28 May 1919 vol 116 c1200

asked the Minister of Labour if he can state why a trade licence should be granted to a Mr. Sharman, Leyton, a Russian, in opposition to men in the same line of business, in the same block of buildings, who had to leave their businesses to serve in the War, and who, being now discharged or demobilised, find an alien legally authorised to compete with them; and if he is aware that the granting of such licences to these men is the cause of great indignation?


I am having inquiries made into this matter, and will communicate the result to my hon. Friend.
