§ 18. Mr. T. Smith
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that at 2151 the Exeter Employment Exchange persons have to stand outside in all weathers while waiting for their unemployment benefit, with the result that cases of illness have occurred; and whether immediate steps can be taken to provide shelter?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I am advised that it is impracticable to provide a shelter at this building, which abuts directly on to the public pavement. There should be no need for applicants to wait any length of time provided they adhere to the timing system.
