HC Deb 28 March 1946 vol 421 c574
57. Major Symonds

asked the Minister of Labour the number of ophthalmic lens workers released under Class B, in accordance with his undertaking given on 22nd January; and if, in view of the continued shortage of lenses, he will increase the number of Class B releases.

Mr. Isaacs

Nominations for the release of ophthalmic lens workers in Class B were only recently received, and there has not yet been sufficient time to enable releases to be effected. As regards the second part of the Question, an increase in the number of Class B releases allocated to this industry has just been agreed.
