HC Deb 09 July 1919 vol 117 c1797
32. Mr. A. SHORT

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that the Darlaston Employment Exchange recently offered to fill vacancies for hot stampers at Preston; whether the rates of wages offered were less than the district rate; whether the chairman of the Walsall Referees Court declined to accept the evidence of the Secretary of the Associated Blacksmiths; whether the donation Benefit was consequently refused; and, if so, whether he will cause an inquiry to be instituted?


No report has been made to me as to the case mentioned by the hon. Member, but I am causing inquiries to be made, and will let him know the result.
