§ 8. Mr. Vernon Bartlett
asked the Minister of Labour whether there is any discrimination at Employment Exchanges against coloured people in Great Britain; whether he is aware of the difficulties experienced by many such workers in their attempts to be of service to the nation at this time of crisis; and what particular steps he is taking to ease these difficulties?
§ Mr. Bartlett
Is it not a fact that in quite a number of these firms there is this discrimination, and should not the Government do everything they can to discourage it, first to increase the labour potential of the country, and secondly to help to remove this discrimination which should not exist in a great democracy?
