HC Deb 25 July 1929 vol 230 cc1537-8W

asked the Minister of Labour the number of juveniles who, during the last three months, have been removed from distressed areas to employment in London; how many were placed in employment in the Camberwell, South-wark and Westminster areas; and what amount of assistance was obtained from the Lord Mayor's fund in these cases?


During the last three months 154 boys have been transferred to employment in the London county area from the depressed mining areas. Of these, 12 were placed in Camberwell, two in Southwark and 13 in Westminster. Grants from the Lord Mayor's Fund in aid of maintenance were paid in the case of 76 boys, of whom nine are in Camberwell and one in Westminster. The weekly payments aggregate £23 10s.
