§ The MINISTER of LABOUR (Mr. Ernest Brown)
Active search is being made for a suitable site, and a new building will be erected as soon as such a site is found.
§ 6. Mr. PARKER
asked the Minister of Labour when the temporary Employment Exchange in Barking is to be replaced by a more permanent building which will provide adequate accommodation for the staff and enable the claims of the unemployed to be dealt with in less discomfort than at present?
§ Mr. PARKER
Is the Minister aware that there is only one room available for use as a cloak-room and mess-room and for meetings of the court of referees and the women's committee; and will he take action at an early date?
§ Mr. MAXTON
Is the Minister aware that his colleague, the First Commissioner of Works, complained very bitterly about the dilatoriness of his Department in regard to the building of new Exchanges, which has prevented him as Commissioner of Works from getting on with this work?
§ 11. Mr. WAKEFIELD
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will arrange for greater facilities at the Employment Exchanges in order that those in employment, seeking to better themselves in their occupation, may be accorded interviews outside their normal hours of employment?
