§ Mr. R. McNEILL
asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that there is a great demand for both skilled and unskilled labour in the devastated regions of France at good wages; and whether he is endeavouring to arrange for British unemployed to have the opportunity of getting work in France under suitable conditions?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The employment of British labour in the devastated regions is attended with difficulties, not the least of which arises from the unfavourable rate of exchange. I am by no means confident that these difficulties can be overcome, but I am having further inquiries made into the matter.
