§ 10. Dr. CLAYTON
asked the Minister of Labour whether the British beet-sugar companies have yet given any undertaking to replace the 18 permanently resident aliens with British subjects?
As these persons are permanently resident in this country, the question of obtaining such an undertaking from their employers does not arise.
§ Dr. CLAYTON
Is it not the intention that British subjects should be trained to take the place of these aliens?
I gather that some British subjects were trained, and that the persons who were brought in in anticipation of the training have left the country; but there were others whom it has been found impossible to replace by British subjects, and they have now become permanently resident here.
§ Mr. CHARLES BROWN
Why is it that the Government do not mind foreign workmen, although they do not like foreign goods?
