HC Deb 23 November 1939 vol 353 cc1437-8W
Mr. Logan

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to unemployment amongst Merseyside pool girls; and whether he will arrange war-work employment for them?

Mr. E. Brown

I am aware that there has been a very considerable increase in unemployment amongst women clerical workers previously employed in connection with football pools. All possible steps are being taken to find suitable alternative employment for those who are registered at the Employment Exchanges, and employment has already been found for a number.
