§ 68. Mr. CHARLES EDWARDS
asked the Minister of Health in how many cases building schemes are being carried out under the Office of Works; and whether any of the men employéd on these schemes are not members of trade unions?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Sir Alfred Mond)
Seventeen schemes are now being carried out by my Department. I am unable to state whether all the men employéd on these schemes are members of trade unions, but labour is recruited through the Labour Exchanges and with the assistance of local labour and trades councils, and the local branches of the Federation of Building Trade Operatives.
§ Mr. W. THORNE
Is there any difficulty in getting men for this particular class of work, and is he in a position to get all the material he requires?
