HC Deb 15 June 1911 vol 26 c1664

asked how many skilled men, fitters, turners, etc., in the engineering trade have obtained situations through the Oldham Labour Exchange since its opening in February, 1910?


The total number of vacancies for men in the engineering and machine making group of trades filled through the Oldham Labour Exchange from 1st February, 1910, to 26th May, 1911, was 274. No distinction between labourers and skilled men was made in the Returns relating to 1910, but all of the vacancies filled in the first five months of 1911 appear to have been for skilled men.
