§ Mr. BARNES
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many, and what proportion, of the managers and staff of the Labour Exchanges who were appointed in the first year after the passing of the Act have yet been put on the establishment?
Of the 136 managers of Labour Exchanges appointed during the first year two were established Civil servants and retained their establishment, six have since been established after promotion to a higher grade, and the Treasury have also assented to the establishment of forty-one who remain in the grade of manager. None of the clerks have yet been established, but their case is under consideration.786W
§ Mr. BARNES
asked the President of the Board of Trade why the staff of the Labour Exchanges who worked overtime in June and July last for the purposes of the National Insurance Act have not been paid for the extra service; and was such payment promised?
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which was given on this subject yesterday to the hon. Members for the Horncastle Division of Lincolnshire and the Westhoughton Division of Lancashire, of which I am sending him a copy. As there stated, the payment of gratuities in respect of the overtime worked in the months in question will be made forthwith.
