§ 30. Sir J. D. REES
asked whether persons newly engaged at national shell factories are sent to the local Labour Exchanges for cards; and, if so, whether the object is to indicate that Labour Exchanges obtained employment for such persons?
§ Dr. ADDISON
If the question refers to the unemployment books of workmen engaged in occupations insured against unemployment under Part II. of the National Insurance Act it is, of course, necessary for workmen to obtain them from the Labour Exchange, but they are not sent to the Labour Exchanges for other purposes. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
§ Mr. W. THORNE
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that men are now registered at Labour Exchanges who are fitted for munitions work, and no work can be found for them?
