asked the Minister of Labour why the 25-year old single woman he has been notified of is permitted to work in a London restaurant band?
Having regard to the provisions of the Control of Engagement Order, I am having further inquiries made into the circumstances of the recent employment of this young woman in a London restaurant band, and I will write to my hon. Friend in due course.
In the fifth year of total war, is it right that young people should be used in this fashion when middle-aged women are being called from their homes and directed to work on munitions?
I must receive the facts.
