HC Deb 18 December 1945 vol 417 cc1101-2
73. Mr. Medland

asked the Minister of Labour whether, before dispersing the 200 labour supply inspectors now declared redundant in his Department, he will consult with the President of the Board of Trade as to the possibility of their absorption in that Department for duty connected with his working parties to assist in the organisation of the building labour necessary for that industry.

76. Mr. George Porter

asked the Minister of Labour if, in view of the redundancy of 200 highly trained technical officers in his Department, he will take steps to see that they are given proper consideration for any vacancies that occur in other Government Departments where their considerable experience will be of advantage to the nation; if he will agree that all such vacancies shall be circulated to the men concerned.

Mr. Isaacs

I can give my hon. Friends a very ready assurance that every effort will be made to find posts for the labour supply inspectors who are to be discharged on redundancy. Any suitable posts in other branches of my Department, in other Government Departments and in industry will be brought to their notice.
