HC Deb 07 December 1944 vol 406 cc701-2
14. Mr. Burke

asked the Minister of Labour if women are still being directed for training at engineering training centres.

Mr. Bevin

It has recently been decided to discontinue the recruitment of women for training in these Centres except for the draughtsmanship, instrument-making and motor mechanics classes.

Mr. Burke

Will the right hon. Gentleman look into the case of a woman who has been touring the Middle East with E.N.S.A., and who has been brought from Ipswich to Burnley recently and directed into training?

Mr. Bevin

If my hon. Friend will give me particulars of the case, I will look into it.
