§ 36. Captain STUART
asked the Minister of Labour whether, with regard to his decision to remove the present area training officer and to close down the sub-office of the Ministry of Labour at Burns Road, Aberdeen, he will reconsider the matter in view of the serious hardship such action will have on the 1371 number of ex-service men in training and awaiting training throughout the whole of the North of Scotland, which is included in this area?
§ Mr. SHAW
The men in training or awaiting training in the North of Scotland are now few and scattered, and a separate office at Aberdeen is no longer needed. A travelling officer will be continued, as at present. The new arrangement will involve no loss of efficiency or hardship to the men and will be more economical.
