HC Deb 26 January 1954 vol 522 c209W
26. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Minister of Labour what steps he is taking to ensure that painters in Dundee, at present unemployed, are fully utilised in the house-building programme.

Mr. Watkinson

Unfortunately, there are at present no vacancies for painters either in housing or in other building work in the Dundee area. The local office is doing everything possible to submit these men to suitable alternative employment.
