§ 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?
§ Sir R. HORNE
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.
