§ Mr. J. Callaghan
asked the Minister of Labour if he will publish a table showing the numbers of men and women in the three Services below Group 50, similar to that contained in columns 443 and 444 of the Official Report of nth October last.
§ Mr. Gammans
asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that the repair of tyres would be greatly expedited if a small amount of skilled specialists could be released from the Forces; and what 109W reply he has given to the representations made to him on 22nd November by the National Tyre Distributors Association.
§ Mr. Isaacs
As regards the first part of the Question, it is already open to employers engaged in the repair of tyres to apply through the Board of Trade for the release, in appropriate cases, of individual specialists in Class B. I am unable to trace the receipt of the representations referred to in the second part of the Question.
