asked the Minister of Labour why the approval of the employment exchange at Northampton has to be obtained before an advertisement offering employment to foremen in a shoe factory in South Africa can be inserted in a Norwich newspaper; and under what regulation this is required.

I have been unable to trace this case, but I shall be glad to make inquiries if the hon. and learned Member will send me details.

As I understand that the branch of the Ministry of Labour at Norwich gave this information which, of course, recognises the importance of Northampton, I will give the right hon. Gentleman particulars and perhaps he will say later whether there is any regulation which makes this necessary?

If the hon. and learned Member will send me particulars, I will let him have the fullest information possible.
