HC Deb 06 March 1941 vol 369 cc1046-7W
Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the disappointment caused to some friendly alien refugees who secure employment as technicians through the efforts of his Department only to be told later by their prospective employers that according to instructions from some Government authorities they could not be engaged in that class of work; and will he do something to remedy this?

Mr. Bevin

Certain restrictions must necessarily be applied as regards the classes of work on which persons of foreign nationality may be employed, but there are in general other opportunities for them to give their services. In the case about which my hon. Friend wrote to me recently the person concerned has obtained what appears to be suitable work.
