HC Deb 05 July 1927 vol 208 c1092
40. Mr. NAYLOR

asked the Minister of Labour if he will state the number of vacancies notified to the Newington (Walworth Road) Employment Exchange during the three months ending May, and the proportion of these received through the Southwark Borough Council and Board of Guardians, respectively?


During the period of 13 weeks ended 23rd May, 1927, 2,769 vacancies for employment were notified to the Borough Employment Exchange. Of this number, four were notified by the Southwark Borough Council and one by the Southwark Board of Guardians.

Colonel DAY

In view of the great number the Minister mentioned for Southwark in a previous reply, can he say whether anything will be done to try to relieve unemployment in that borough?
