HC Deb 20 March 1929 vol 226 cc1722-3
19. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has had any Report of the new Employment Exchange at Hull, particularly as regards accommodation and staffing; and if he is aware that complaints are made of overcrowding and delays in dealing with workmen and others attending the new Exchange?


An inspection of this new office has been made, and a report will be received shortly. After so recent a move and with the present high rate of unemployment, a certain amount of dislocation is inevitable, but I am not aware of ground for serious complaint of congestion and delay.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

When will the right hon. Gentleman receive the Report?


I will communicate with the hon. and gallant Member when I have read it.
