HC Deb 02 April 1957 vol 568 c205
1. Mr. Isaacs

asked the Minister of Works when he estimates that the new Borough employment exchange will be built; and whether the more centralised location originally chosen for this purpose is to be used.

The Minister of Works (Mr. Hugh Molson)

It had been hoped that a building on the Keyworth Street site to house the new Borough employment exchange might be started at the end of 1958 and finished in 1960. In view of the nature of the development planned in the neighbourhood, I am giving further consideration to this matter.

Mr. Isaacs

I appreciate the information which the right hon. Gentleman has given to me, but I hope that something can be done fairly soon. The old exchange is very inconvenient and is a long way from the real centre of the borough. If the right hon. Gentleman could manage to get it built so that I could lay the foundation stone before I leave this House, I should be glad.

Mr. Molson

Nothing would give me more satisfaction than that the right hon. Gentleman should lay the foundation stone. Perhaps we could have a talk about the matter.
