§ 6. Lieutenant Butcher
asked the Minister of Labour for what reason a boot repairer carrying on business in Boston, Lincolnshire, was directed by him early in April to report for work on boot repairs at a factory in Nottingham; whether he is aware as a result of this direction he was compelled to close his shop and that he has since been discharged?
§ Lieutenant Butcher
While I thank my right hon. Friend, will he take steps to see that increased demands for labour are met by the training of new entrants and the up-grading of less skilled workers, and not by the transference of skilled labour in circumstances which cause great hardship?
