§ 57. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas
asked the Minister of Labour if he will state the conditions under which foreign nationals temporarily resident in this country may take employment.
61. Vice-Admiral Taylor
asked the Minister of Labour what are the conditions under which foreign nationals are entitled to take up employment in this country.
§ Mr. Isaacs
Foreign nationals temporarily resident in this country normally have a condition on their entry visa and police Certificate of Registration under which they require the permission of my Department before taking up or changing any employment. They may not be placed in or granted permission to accept employment where this would be to the detriment of suitable unemployed British labour, nor where the conditions and wages are less favourable than those which would be offered to a British subject.
§ Sir J. Lucas
In the case of Allied airmen who served in the Royal Air Force and who have been wounded and discharged, are the same difficulties put in their way if they cannot return to their own country for political reasons?
§ Sir J. Lucas
Will the right hon. Gentleman look into the matter if I give him further information about their difficulty in getting employment?
§ Mr. Scollan
Is my right hon. Friend satisfied that he is getting as good results in his efforts to secure labour for various occupations which are crying out for labour as his predecessor was in getting the necessary labour for the prosecution of the war? Is my right hon. Friend trying the same methods?
