HC Deb 24 May 1922 vol 154 cc1236-7W

asked the Minister of Labour if his attention has been called to the case of Trevor Daniel, 287, Moorland Road, Cardiff, a student in training at the Government Instructional Factory, Cardiff, who has been suspended for alleged bad conduct; whether he is aware that the application of Daniel immediately on suspension for an interview with the local technical advisory committee was only granted after nine weeks had elapsed; that his alleged bad conduct was limited to his having acted as spokesman for the whole of the class, of which he was a member, in electrical engineering in the matter of complaint to the manager; and whether, in view of Daniel's exceptionally good record as a student, and the certificate as to character and conduct which he holds from the principal of the technical college, an inquiry can be held into the circumstances of his suspension, with a view to his reinstatement?


I have given this case my careful consideration, and, while I am not prepared to reinstate Mr. Trevor Daniel in training at the Government Instructional Factory, Cardiff, arrangements are being made for him to be placed in a factory in another area, for the completion of his institutional training.
