asked the Minister of Labour whether it is now possible to find a substitute for Mr. G. W. J. Crump, who is at present employed as a pony driver in a gypsum mine, in view of the fact that this man is a qualified plumber and builder, and that applications for his transfer have been proceeding for many months and are now being pressed by the Ministry of Works without effect.

:Mr. Crump opted to work in gypsum mining as an alternative to service in the Forces and he cannot be allowed to leave it before the date on which he would have been demobilised had he been in the Army. Continued efforts are being made to find a substitute so that Mr. Crump may be transferred to other work in the gypsum mine.
