HC Deb 31 July 1941 vol 373 cc1507-8
7. Mr. Crowder

asked the Minister of Labour how many electrical engineers have been placed through the instrumentality of the Central Register since September, 1940; and the cost per placing?

Mr. Bevin

The number of electrical engineers placed through the medium of the Central Register between 1st October, 1940, and 26th July, 1941, is 404. I am unable to give the cost per placing.

Mr. Crowder

In view of the small number of people who are being placed through the Central Register, could the right hon. Gentleman speed up the machinery and if possible, if he could spare the time, attend one of the meetings with the idea of speeding-up placing generally?

Mr. Bevin

I will certainly look into it.

Mr. Stephen

How many electrical engineers are there on the Central Register?

Mr. Bevin

I should have to have notice of that question.
