HC Deb 18 June 1940 vol 362 cc44-5W
Sir I. Albery

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour, in view of unemployment in the paper industry in the Gravesend district, what are the proposals which he is considering for utilising all available local labour?

Mr. Assheton

Every effort is being made by the Department's local offices, with the assistance of the employers concerned, to place the available workers in other employment either directly or after training. Up to the present 136 men have been accepted for training and approximately 464 workers have been placed in other employment.
