HC Deb 03 March 1939 vol 344 cc1638-9W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that transferred factory workers may lose their present employment not only at the age of 21 but at a later stage when they get married, since in many cases the wages which they receive in the South are not sufficient to support a family; and whether he will take active steps to deal with this problem?

Mr. E. Brown

It is frequently the case that the industrial employment of women workers ceases on marriage. I do not understand in what way the hon. Member thinks this is due to the alleged inadequacy of their wages to support a family. Perhaps he will be good enough to see me on the matter.
