HC Deb 21 March 1940 vol 358 c2137W
Mr. Burke

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has considered the present shortage of certain classes of labour in the cotton industry; and if he will reduce the age of reservation for employés in such positions as loom-overlookers?

Mr. E. Brown

I made a statement upon this subject in reply to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Willesden East (Mr. Hammersley) on 13th March, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member.
