HC Deb 07 July 1938 vol 338 c617W
Mr. Tomlinson

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in the recruitment of unskilled labour for Government contracts, he will take steps to prevent the men in Lancashire who are scheduled as weavers being debarred from consideration because of their being so scheduled?

Mr. E. Brown

There is no such restriction. Unemployed men who are classified as weavers, may be considered for any vacancies for which they are suitable.
