asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if, in view of the unrest among the unemployed coloured workers in the Liverpool area, he will make arrangements for the Colonial Office Advisory Committee in Liverpool to meet at once.
I know that there is concern about employment among these workers. An urgent review is being undertaken of the possibilities of employment for each man affected and this is expected to be completed within a very few weeks. In the meantime action is proceeding about individual cases. As soon as the necessary material has been assembled, I will ask the Chairman of the Committee to consider calling an early meeting to discuss it.
