HC Deb 28 April 1910 vol 17 c635

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he would state the number of appointments made by the Board of Trade in connection with Labour Exchanges in Ireland, the number of applicants and appointments of residents in the province of Connaught, and the number of vacancies still existing?


I have been asked by my right hon. Friend to answer this question. Thirty-three appointments have been made in connection with the Labour Exchanges in Ireland, and up to the present time none of these Exchanges are in the province of Connaught. I am not in a position to state how many of the applicants for posts were resident in Connaught. Three minor clerical appointments are still vacant in the Exchanges open at the present time in Ireland.
