Two thousand one hundred and sixty-nine British subjects from Egypt have registered for employment. Of these 914 have been found work by my Department. In addition a number have found their own employment and some have emigrated. At 21st June, there were 422 men and women still awaiting placing.
Is my hon. Friend aware that many of these people, particularly ex-employees of Suez contractors, are at an age at which it is extremely difficult to place them, and will he continue his efforts to find them employment?
