HC Deb 17 March 1944 vol 398 c529W
Captain Plugge

asked the Minister of Labour how many of the wholly unemployed 26,741 women in January last have been directed to domestic employment in hospitals and institutions.

Mr. E. Bevin

The statistics are not kept in a form which enables this information to be given. I can assure my hon. and gallant Friend that no effort is spared to supply the needs for hospital domestic staff whether from the unemployed registers or otherwise. Over 3,000 persons were placed in this employment in the month ending 1st March.
