HC Deb 16 May 1928 vol 217 c1021

asked the Under-secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, when the building of a new Employment Exchange to replace the Exchange at Quality Street. Leith, is to be commenced, or what progress is being made with preliminary work?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Lieut.-Colonel Sir Vivian Henderson)

The actual date for the commencement of building cannot at present be stated. My Department is, however, actively negotiating for the acquisition of a new site, and sketch plans of the building proposed to be erected are under discussion with the Ministry of Labour.
