Mr. V. Adams
asked the Minister of Labour the number of permits issued by his Department to German citizens for the purpose of taking up employment with Messrs. Siemens-Schucket (Great Britain) Limited; and whether he is satisfied that in the case of such employés their work cannot be done by British subjects?
§ Mr. E. Brown,
pursuant to his reply (OFFICIAL REPORT, 10th February, 1938; col. 1235, Vol. 331), supplied the following statement:
According to the records of my Department, apart from certain German nationals whose stay in this country is not subject to restrictions, two German student-employés and eight other German nationals are employed under permission by the company. Except in the case of the student-employés, permission is given on the ground that British subjects with 928W the requisite qualifications are not available for the particular employment.
