§ 24. Mr. Quintin Hogg
asked the Minister of Labour how many operatives it is estimated will be employed in the building industry by 10th May, 1946.
§ Mr. Isaacs
It is expected that by 10th May, 1946, the number of operatives available for employment in the building 16 industry will be about 750,000. It is not easy to distinguish between building workers and civil engineering workers and many of the latter are available for building work.
