§ 12. Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any instructions are issued by the dockyard authorities to the Devonport and Plymouth Employment Exchanges that shipwrights should not be submitted for entry as labourers in His Majesty's dockyard; and whether, in cases of shipwrights who are unemployed and are anxious to secure work in any capacity in the dockyard, he will give instructions that they can be entered as labourers, if they so desire, until such time as there is a vacancy in their own trade?
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, and the second part does not, therefore, arise.
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the impression which I have mentioned is the impression at the Employment Exchange?
I have already made particular inquiries, because of the hon. Member's question being on the Paper. My answer represents the facts.
