HC Deb 31 July 1947 vol 441 c87W
91. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether it is proposed to allow any of the high-grade German scientists and technicians, brought to the United Kingdom under the scheme announced by him in the House on 19th December, 1945, to be employed by a firm on private contract.

Sir S. Cripps

When it is considered desirable to retain in the United Kingdom on a more permanent basis a German whose exceptional ability and usefulness has been demonstrated, it is proposed to permit a private industrial concern, which is able and willing to develop his ideas industrially, to enter into a direct contract with the German, in a similar manner to that in which a firm may employ any other alien permitted to enter the United Kingdom under a Ministry of Labour permit
