§ 6. Mr. Brooke
asked the Minister of Labour whether it is his intention that firms engaged in Government contracts, and employing men on work which could be efficiently done by women, should adopt a policy of replacing the men with women as soon as women can be trained for the purpose?
§ Mr. Brooke
As a change-over of this sort is naturally liable to cause acute feeling locally, can a firm which endeavours to release men in this way count on the full support of the Minister?
