asked the Minister of Labour why the Norwich employment exchange refused permission for a Polish skilled engineer to take employment with a local firm who are anxious to secure his services.

I wrote to the hon. member on 28th August explaining that this occurred at a time when discussions on the employment of Poles were in progress with the employers' organisations and the trade unions in the engineering industry, and the placing of Poles in that industry was at the request of both sides temporarily suspended. The vacancy has since been filled by a British worker.
