§ 36. Mr. JAMES HUDSON
asked the Minister of Labour the number of workers formerly engaged at the Enderley Mills, Newcastle-under-Lyme, who have since the beginning of this year, when this firm lost the Post Office clothing contracts, become registered as unemployed and still remain on the live register?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of LABOUR (Mr. Betterton)
I do not know what the facts are in this case, but while I am always ready to supply general information, it would obviously be improper and unfair to publish information which can be identified as applying to a particular firm.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Will the hon. Member consult with the Postmaster-General on this question and see whether it is possible to break this clothing ring, which apparently has broken the lives of 500 of my constituents?
