HC Deb 25 May 1954 vol 528 c9W
12. Mr. J. Hynd

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been drawn to the special problems of placing the large numbers of colonial workers, now entering this country, in employment suited to their special needs in physique, language, etc.; and what instructions he has issued to local employment exchanges in this connection.

Mr. Watkinson

I expect that the Question put by the hon. Member has been inspired by the recent arrival of some 700 Jamaicans. There has been a steady flow of workers from the West Indies in recent years and the employment exchanges are experienced in helping them to find work. No special instructions are therefore necessary.
