HC Deb 26 March 1971 vol 814 cc235-6W
Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) whether he will investigate the circumstances of the employment of au pair girls at Oundle School who are receiving more than the permitted level of remuneration.

(2) in view of the fact that au pair girls are being employed as domestics at Oundle School and paid £7 a week, why they were not required to get an employment permit to enter the United Kingdom.

Mr. Sharpies

I understand that these girls are not in this country on an au pair basis but hold work permits for resident domestic employment.
