§ 37. Mr. F. M. Bennett
asked the Minister of Labour how many citizens of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics have applied, during the last ten years, for labour permits to work in this country.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
Permits which are granted to employers were issued for the employment of 179 citizens of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics during the ten years to the end of 1955. Of these 166 were issued in the last two years.
§ Mr. Bennett
Does the Minister think that nowadays there may be an opportunity for developing some form of exchange by which we might have more U.S.S.R. citizens here and send over there some of the categories in this country with distinct Communist leanings, so that they might live in their own paradise?
