asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the inadequate arrangements for the reception and billeting of women, aero-engine fitters, recently transferred to a town in Scotland, of which he has been informed, from their training centre; and whether he will take steps generally to improve the accommodation?

Arrangements were made in advance for the billeting and feeding of the women in question, they were met on arrival, a hot meal was ready for them, and they were taken to their billets, where I understand they were well received. Other accommodation was found for them within a few days, and I do not think the initial arrangements can fairly be described as inadequate in the circumstances.
