§ 6. Mr. MANDER
asked the Minister of Labour what arrangements are in existence at seaside resorts to supervise the employment of girls sent there for domestic service at boarding houses; and whether there are local welfare committees to see that the conditions and hours are reasonable?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
Women and girls who take up at holiday resorts domestic employment found for them by the Ministry are given full particulars in writing of the wages and other conditions, and are advised to apply to the Exchange in the district if in need of assistance. Arrangements are made, with the advice of the women's sub-committee of the local employment committees and of juvenile advisory committees for cooperation with voluntary bodies, such as the Girls' Friendly Society, the Young Women's Christian Association, and the Travellers' Aid Society, in the organisation of welfare arrangements.
§ Mr. MANDER
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether these committees are functioning successfully in North Wales?
Is not the real problem that of the Welsh girls in domestic service away from Wales, and not the question of domestic service in Wales?
§ Mr. JAMES GRIFFITHS
Is not the problem due to the fact that the girls are compelled to leave Wales?
