§ Mr. Orbach
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will seek to vary the Aliens Order, 1953 so that hospitals may be in the same position as private establishments in applying for permission to employ foreigners in their catering departments.
§ Mr. Fernyhough
The rules governing the employment of foreigners in the catering departments of hospitals are in general less stringent than those applicable to the hotel and catering industry. If my hon. Friend has a particular case in mind perhaps he will let me have details and I will look into it.
