asked the Minister of Labour if she will state the estimated number of women who have been given direct employment by emergency schemes initiated by the present Government?

I would refer the right hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Lanark North (Miss Lee) on 6th November.

Is it quite clear that the claim is made by the Government that women obtained direct employment as a result of schemes initiated by them?

Has anything come of the Committee that was to look into the question of finding employment and training for women over 33?
