HC Deb 07 November 1921 vol 148 cc64-5W

asked the Minister of Labour whether the Employment Exchange at Blaenau Festiniog is to be closed; whether he is aware that this Exchange is the only one in the county of Merioneth, and that the area in which it is situate is the centre of a large industry in which unemployment prevailed for many years; and whether he will consider the desirability of retaining the Exchange?


After careful consideration I propose to discontinue the temporary Employment Exchange, opened at Blaenau Festiniog during the demobilisation period, and to replace it by a Branch Employment Office, which will be much more economical and will, I am satisfied, be adequate to meet the needs of the district.

Forward to
