HC Deb 12 April 1910 vol 16 cc1068-9

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any decision has yet been come to on the question of establishing a Central Labour Exchange for the mining areas of South Wales?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Sydney Buxton)

I have considered the matter, and I do not think that any useful purpose would be served by establishing a separate Central Labour Exchange for the mining industry, but in the mining districts where the Exchanges, such as those at Merthyr and Pontypridd, may deal largely with miners, I am considering the possibility of setting aside a special registration room for miners.
