§ 14. Mr. Ellis Smith
asked the Minister of Labour if he is satisfied with the facilities and standards of accommodation in the employment exchanges within the City of Stoke-on-Trent, and with the siting of the Longton Employment Exchange; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Wood
I recently visited one of these employment exchanges and am satisfied that their standards of accommodation are reasonable and provide adequate facilities within the City of Stoke-on-Trent for the present and foreseeable needs of my Department. Three of the employment exchanges are in buildings specially designed for the purpose. The Hanley Exchange is in premises suitably adapted.
I think the position of the Longton Employment Exchange is reasonable.
