HC Deb 09 March 1954 vol 524 cc144-5W
Mr. N. Nicolson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what advice or warning is given to West Indians intending to come to this country about the difficulties of obtaining work.

Mr. J. Foster

The Government of Jamaica, which is the Territory principally concerned, issues warnings through the public Press from time to time emphasising the difficulties likely to be encountered in obtaining work in this country, and strongly advising individuals against proceeding to the United Kingdom unless they have made definite arrangements for employment and accommodation in advance.
