HC Deb 24 February 1948 vol 447 c1776
88. Mr. Randall

asked the Minister of Labour when the deputation of Government, Cotton Board, employers' and operatives' organisation representatives is going to Germany and Austria to explore the possibilities of recruitment of labour for the cotton industry; and is not sufficient information available without recourse to this special visit.

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

It is expected that the party will leave early in March. I am satisfied that the visit will serve a useful purpose.
