HC Deb 27 February 1924 vol 170 c461
75. Mr. MURRAY

asked the Minister of Labour if it is by his instructions or in accordance with regulations that the manager of Port Glasgow Employment Exchange has notified all caulkers, drillers, rivetters, and other shipyard workers that they must be in attendance at the exchange from 7.45 till 8.15 each morning, on the chance of being sent to a vacancy; if he is aware that this is resented by the unemployed, who regard it as a scheme calculated to make them accept improper conditions offered by some employers; and, if so, if he will say whether he will consider an alteration of this practice?


I am inquiring into this matter, and will communicate the result to my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
