HC Deb 07 March 1934 vol 286 cc1811-2
45. Mr. HICKS

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that Thomas Capper and Thomas Quinn, bricklayers, of Motherwell, were offered employment on the 16th February, 1934, at Willesden, 400 miles distant, and that on that date there were unemployed bricklayers in London; and whether he will inquire into the matter and state why local workmen were not employed in the interests of economy?


I am making inquiries and will let the hon. Member know the result.
