HC Deb 18 April 1910 vol 16 c1682

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Castlebar Urban Council forwarded a resolution to him asking to have a Labour Exchange established in Castlebar for the county of Mayo, it being the county town and most centrally situated; and whether, in view of the unanimous opinion of the people of the town and county on the subject, he will consider the advisability of having an exchange established there in the near future?


I have received from the Castlebar Urban Council a resolution asking for the establishment of a Labour Exchange in Castlebar. As I have already said, in answer to previous questions on this subject, the further development of the Labour Exchange system in Ireland is receiving careful consideration, but it is not possible at present to provide exchanges in every important area.
