HC Deb 05 November 1936 vol 317 c272W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that hotel and restaurant proprietors are bringing into the country waiters and other employés for the purpose of employing them during the Coronation festivities; and, if so, does he intend to take any action to safeguard the interests of the British hotel employés?


Permits for the introduction of foreigners for employment in hotels and restaurants—apart from a few required for highly specialised posts —are limited to student-employés under special arrangements which, in most instances, provide for corresponding facilities for British student-employés. Consequently, the interests of British hotel employés are well safeguarded.
