HC Deb 28 February 1921 vol 138 cc1388-9
15. Mr. MILLS

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the continued discharges of ex-service men and civilians in the cement industry at Greenhithe, Swanscombe and Northfleet; and whether this is due to an embargo on the export of cement?


I am informed by the Ministry of Labour that no discharges of cement makers in the Gravesend district have been notified to them, although there have been a few discharges of cement barrel makers owing to the recent fall in the export trade in cement. There is no licence required for the export of cement.
