HC Deb 21 May 1942 vol 380 c379W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Minister of Labour whether all fitters released from the Royal Air Force are employed in the work for which they have been trained?

Mr. Bevin

The training received by these men in the Royal Air Force is mainly for maintenance purposes in operational conditions, and it was not always possible to place them in industrial vacancies in which this training would be completely utilised. I am always prepared, however, to investigate any case in which it is suggested that proper use is not being made of a man's skill and if my hon. Friend will let me have details of any case he has in mind I will have inquiry made.
