HC Deb 20 March 1930 vol 236 c2066
1. Mr. DAY

asked the Minister off Labour how many miners who were transferred to the Borough of Southwark under the Transference Scheme are still in employment; and whether they are in the original positions to which they were sent?

The MINISTER of LABOUR (Miss Bondfield)

Special efforts, which I think are generally successful, are made by the Exchanges to find other employment for transferred persons who become unemployed, but detailed records are not kept and I regret, therefore, that it is not possible to supply the statistics desired by my hon. Friend.


Is my right hon. Friend aware that many of these positions which have been taken up by transferred workers are only temporary, and that the workers are now unemployed?


I am not aware of that fact.
