HC Deb 24 January 1940 vol 356 c595W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Minister of Health whether he will issue a circular to local authorities, especially London borough councils, pointing out the need to give preference to British subjects and that Irishmen from Eire should not be employed on casual labour, either as foremen or labourers, unless they have resided in the United Kingdom for over five years?

Mr. Elliot

I do not think that I could usefully adopt my hon. Friend's suggestion.
