asked the Minister of Labour how many European volunteer workers have now been placed in domestic employment in farmers' households.

A large proportion of the initial batches of the European Volunteer Workers who are suitable for domestic work have had to be placed with the National Service Hostels Corporation for the running of the camps in which the E.V.Ws., including those recruited for industrial work, are themselves accommodated.
