§ 73. Mr. DUCKWORTH
asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that 10 men training in the Watch and Clock Department, G.I.F., Ayres Road, Old Trafford, Manchester, were given four weeks' notice in writing on 3rd March to terminate their course on 31st March, and that they were afterwards informed that they must finish on 10th March, so depriving them of three weeks' training and wages; and will he explain the reason for this action?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
