§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Duff Cooper)
The number of male employés under 21 years of age engaged on explosives work at War Department establishments at the Royal Arsenal is approximately 270.
§ Mr. COOPER
They are not engaged in any work in which the employment of youths is more likely to lead to explosion than the employment of older men.
§ Mr. MACLEAN
Does the right hon. Gentleman think that this work is suitable for boys of the age mentioned; and will he see that they are replaced by men?
