§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of LABOUR (Mr. Betterton)
In general, unemployment among juveniles is not heavy, but in certain areas it constitutes a problem. Juvenile Unemployment Centres are established where the need exists and special steps have been taken to open such centres in certain of the mining areas. Efforts are being made to find vacancies for juveniles from these areas, and the machinery of the Employment Exchanges and the Juvenile Committees is being utilised for this purpose, but there is nothing in the nature of a formal scheme of transfer.
§ Mr. BETTERTON
I should like to have notice of that question. I should not care to answer it without giving the hon. Member full information as to what is done.
