HC Deb 18 March 1937 vol 321 c2226
2. Mr. Whiteley

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that men going to the Blaydon Employment Exchange for interview are being kept waiting an unreasonable time; and whether he will have inquiries made with a view to preventing such delay?

Mr. E. Brown

I have made inquiries and have been unable to find any ground for complaint on this account. If the hon. Member will give me particulars I will make further inquiry.

Mr. Whiteley

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that two men who were asked to attend at the Exchange by appointment had to wait for two-and-a-quarter hours on a Friday, and that in another case a man who waited for two hours on Friday, had to go back again on the Saturday?

Mr. Brown

Perhaps the hon. Member will let me have particulars of these cases. As he knows, I am always willing to look into complaints.
