HC Deb 22 March 1948 vol 448 cc293-4W
Mr. Gallacher

asked the Minister of Transport the number of workers employed in Scotland on building and civil engineering projects for which he is responsible in June, 1947, and the number to be employed on such work at June, 1948, in Scotland in accordance with the proposals set out in the White Paper on Capital Expenditure in 1948, Command 7268.

Mr. Barnes

In June, 1947, the number of building and civil engineering workers employed on contract work for transport in Scotland was approximately 1,500. I regret that it is not yet possible to forecast what will be the corresponding figures for June, 1948.
