HC Deb 14 June 1921 vol 143 cc230-1
59. Lieut.-Colonel NALL

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether for some years the Board of Education and the Ministry of Labour have maintained overlapping and antagonistic committees dealing with juvenile employment; and can immediate steps be taken by the Government to alter this state of things?


I am aware that better co-ordination between the work of the Local Education Authorities and of the Employment Exchanges, under the Education (Choice of Employment) Act, 1910, and the Labour Exchanges Act, 1909, in advising and assisting young persons in choosing and obtaining employment is required, and I am happy to say that Lord Chelmsford has accepted an invitation to inquire into the matter on behalf of the Government with a view to arriving at an early settlement of the matter.
