HC Deb 18 July 1938 vol 338 cc1802-3
58. Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has now considered the possibility of setting up an Employment Exchange in Hornchurch?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour (Mr. Lennox-Boyd)

It is proposed to provide local office facilities at Hornchurch as soon as suitable premises can be found.

Mr. Parker

Would the hon. Gentleman investigate that matter and speed things up, because there is great discontent owing to the fact that, at the present time, people have to use the Employment Exchange at Romford, which is understaffed and overcrowded.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I can assure the hon. Member that real expedition is being used.
