HC Deb 16 June 1913 vol 54 c47W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the action of Messrs. John Mowlem and Company in refusing to employ workmen who cannot. produce their insurance cards, although the workmen when they became unemployed had to deposit their cards at a Labour Exchange; and whether he proposes taking any action in the matter?


My attention has been called to this matter. I cannot at the moment say more than that it is receiving the careful consideration of the Department with a view to meeting, if possible, the difficulty to which my hon. Friend refers.
