§ 8. Mr. Leslie Hale
asked the Minister of Labour why German women can obtain permission to enter this country to work in domestic service but are unable to obtain permission to enter this country to work in export industries.
§ The Minister of Labour (Mr. Isaacs)
After consultation with other Ministers concerned, I am prepared to consider applications from employers for permission to employ Germans, either men or women, generally, subject of course to the usual safeguards.
§ Mr. Bramall
Does that mean that the employer must have a particular German woman in mind before he applies, or can he apply to the Ministry to employ a German woman who would then be recruited in Germany?
§ Mr. Isaacs
No, we do not undertake recruitment in these special circumstances; he must have a person in mind.
