§ 12. Mr. Lawson
asked the Minister of Labour whether special steps are being taken to make up a shortage of voluntary recruiting for reconditioning centres; and whether he will state the nature of such special arrangements?
§ Mr. E. Brown
Arrangements have been made for the local officers of the Unemployment Assistance Board to interview applicants in receipt of unemployment assistance and to bring to their notice the facilities available in these centres. I am glad to be able to say that this is working satisfactorily and has resulted in a substantial increase in the number of recruits.
§ Mr. Lawson
I take it there has not been any need to bring pressure to bear on any wholesale scale?
