§ 69. Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that it will be three to four years before any apprentice is capable of taking his place among the tradesmen in the Bricklayers' Union; and whether, under the circumstances, he considers that the restoration of the apprenticeship system in the building industry will be adequate to meet the shortage of labour in carrying out the housing proposals of the Government?
§ Mr. N. MACLEAN
Will the right hon. Gentleman ask the building operatives if they are prepared to extend facilities to the hon. Member who asked the question?
