By a Staff Reporter A London Labour Exchange recently sent a seven-months' pregnant woman to apply for work in a factory. The personnel manager refused to employ her. The woman was convinced that she was liable for war service, irrespective of her condition.
On enquiry at the Ministry of Labour
was informed that although there is no limit put to the time that a pregnant woman may work in a factory, she can, if she wishes, get a medical certificate to the effect that she is pregnant and that automatically exempts her from service.
