HC Deb 21 January 1947 vol 432 cc11-2
11. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Labour for how many Poles he has given permission to be employed at John Lysaghts, Limited, in view of the shortage of labour and the urgent demand for increased supply of steel; what are the terms and conditions of their employment; what arrangements have been made for their housing accommodation; and whether the iron and steel federation have yet agreed to the proposal.

Mr. Isaacs

Arrangements have been made to recruit members of the Polish Resettlement Corps for employment with this firm. The men will work as civilians under conditions appropriate to the work that they are doing. I am making inquiries as to the numbers involved and the arrangements for their accommodation, and will write to my hon. Friend.
