§ 51. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge
asked the Minister of Labour what action he intends to take in the Penryn and Falmouth area to prevent the refusal by employers on political grounds to accept applicants directed to them by his officers.
§ Mr. Skeffington-Lodge
Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is an attempt in this area to introduce the worst methods of the Inquisition in that the chairman of the local Conservative Association has stated that in no circumstances will he employ anyone who does not quite fit in with his political views?
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
Is it not the case that in Falmouth the only question asked was whether a man was a member of the Communist Party or not, and can the Minister say why employers should not be allowed to impose the same ban as the T.U.C. are now trying to impose in regard to their officials?
