HC Deb 26 April 1923 vol 163 c686W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that unemployed persons residing at Aberfan, in the Merthyr area, are obliged to walk to Treharris, a distance of six miles out and back, for the purpose of signing the unemployed register; that some of the men are ex-service men still suffering from the effects of wounds; and whether, in the circumstances, he will consider arrangements to enable these unemployed persons to sign the register in Aberfan?


I am making inquiries locally and will communicate the result to the hon. Member.
