HC Deb 27 June 1950 vol 476 cc2071-2
7. Mr. William Elwyn Jones

asked the Minister of Labour what was the number of persons registered as unemployed in the employment exchanges at Pen-maenmawr, Conway and Llandudno at the latest available date.

Mr. Isaacs

At 12th June, the numbers of unemployed persons on the registers of the Penmaenmawr, Conway and Llandudno employment exchanges were 76, 53 and 81 respectively.

Mr. R. S. Hudson

On a point of order. In view of the large number of Questions on the Order Paper today, Sir, may I ask could not such Questions as this be put down for written and not oral answer? After all, they are purely statistical.

Mr. Speaker

I am bound to leave that to the judgment of the individual Member. If there are any points other than a local point, he is justified in asking for an oral answer, but, on a purely local question asking for figures, it would save a lot of time if the Question could be put down for non-oral answer.
