§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the Minister of Labour the number of persons, specifying men, women, boys and girls, on the Devonport Employment Exchange during the months of December and January
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
The following table gives the number of persons on the registers of the Devonport Employment Exchange at the beginning of each week in December, 1926, and January, 1927:
for conducting espionage on behalf of Germany against England and France, is on the Royal Air Force Reserve; if he was, in fact, employed since the War on 445W an inter-Allied mission; and if, during his alleged subsequent occupation, he was travelling with a British passport?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As regards the second part, Mr. Stranders was employed as a temporary officer under the Inter-Allied Aeronautical Commission of Control between the end of 1919 and the beginning of 1921. I have no information in regard to his employment since then. The last part of the question is not strictly for the Air Ministry, but I understand that the answer to it is in the affirmative.
