HC Deb 03 December 1941 vol 376 cc1146-7W
Mrs. Hardie

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any women will be appointed to the Colonial Labour Advisory Committee which his Department intends to set up?

Mr. George Hall

The selection of the four non-official members of the Com- mittee has not yet been made, and I am therefore unable to state whether any one of them will be a woman. In any event, the possibility of including a woman member, or woman members, in the personnel of the Committee at a later date, as and when its activities develop, will not be lost sight of.
