HC Deb 12 March 1957 vol 566 cc150-1W
68. Sir J. Hutchison

asked the Minister of Labour in how many cases during 1956 British nationals have obtained employment abroad under the Western European scheme for exchange of information on employment available in member States; and whether such information is available at all employment exchanges.

Mr. Iain Macleod

During 1956, 19 British nationals entered employment abroad under the scheme for interchange of employment information between the countries of the Western European Union. Particulars of the scheme are available at all local offices and individual vacancies are circulated to employment exchanges where the volume of placing work is such that the exchange can make effective use of them.
