§ Mr. BAKER
asked the right hon. Member for Cheltenham, as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, the number of members of the staff under his control who are in regular employment, and for whom provision is made during the long recess; the number of those who constitute the remainder to whom notice is given, and 2275W for whom no provision is made; and whether he will make suitable provision to provide against their unemployment?
§ Sir JAMES AGG-GARDNER (Chairman of the Kitchen Committee)
In reply to the question of the hon. Member, the number of the staff regarded as being on regular employment, and whose services are retained, is 30. Those who are engaged under different conditions number at present 78. We do our best to make suitable provision for all our employés, but it is obviously impossible for us to guarantee constant employment in any walk of life.
