HC Deb 07 February 1893 vol 8 c675
MR. DALZIEL (Kirkcaldy)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether, in view of the impossibility under present conditions of obtaining accurate information respecting the number of workmen unemployed, he will consider the advisability of communicating with Local Authorities, suggesting to them the opening of official registries, and the forwarding of periodical Reports to his Department?


This matter, Sir, is receiving my most careful consideration in connection with the arrangements made with the establishment of the new Labour Department of the Board of Trade.
