HC Deb 21 November 1968 vol 773 c306W
34. Mr. Lubbock

asked the Postmaster-General if he will relax the General Post Office's restrictions on the employment of aliens, for Czechoslovak students who wish to do Christmas sorting.

Mr. Joseph Slater

The Post Office is bound by the Aliens' Employment Act of 1955 not to employ aliens when suitable British subjects are available. My right hon. Friend cannot, therefore, issue any general variation of this rule but employment may be possible at some offices.
