HC Deb 31 October 1916 vol 86 c1596W

asked the Minister of Munitions if he is aware of the number of joiners and other skilled workmen out of employment in Belfast; and whether, with the object of utilising the labour of these men, he can see his way to place orders for articles or materials required by his Department with Belfast firms?


Orders for substantial quantities of articles required by the Ministry of Munitions have been placed in Belfast. If the hon. Member has in mind any firm in a position to carry out further contracts, he should ask that firm to apply to the district office of the Ministry in that town.
