HC Deb 20 April 1950 vol 474 c322
69. Mr. Redmayne

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the difficulty of obtaining employment in the Nottingham area for a skilled welder with full experience in the aircraft industry; and what action he is taking to overcome this difficulty.

Mr. Isaacs

I have written to the hon. Member explaining the circumstances of this individual case.

Mr. Redmayne

Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that this question crystallises the fears of some 600 men at Nottingham, who are not entirely satisfied with their jobs and are afraid of losing, not only their skill, but also their homes?

Mr. Isaacs

It does nothing of the kind. If the hon. Gentleman had carefully examined the letter I have sent to him he would have informed the House in his supplementary question that this man is not out of a job, is not in need of a job, and is merely making inquiries about another job should he need one.
