HC Deb 20 May 1947 vol 437 cc2183-4
84. Mrs. Ayrton Gould

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that a considerable number of men and women over 45 years of age are unable to get work of any kind although they are in good health and often have useful experience; and if he will take steps to prevent this unnecessary loss of valuable manpower.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour (Mr. Ness Edwards)

I would refer my hon. friend to the reply given to the hon. member for Taunton (Mr. Collins) on 29th April, a copy of which I am sending her.
