HC Deb 24 July 1929 vol 230 c1325W

asked the Minister of Labour if she will inform the House as to the conditions of opening sub-offices and take into consideration the desirability of extending the service, as many unemployed persons have to walk over three miles to sign the register at an Employment Exchange?


The existing Employment Exchange facilities are considered to be adequate for normal requirements and have been adapted to meet the prevailing abnormal conditions; but my right hon. Friend is willing to examine, on merits, the claim of any particular district for increased facilities.
