HC Deb 13 March 1929 vol 226 cc1145-6W

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to the case of 20 miners who had been transferred from Pontypool to Wallingford under the transference scheme; is he aware that the surveyor engaged one man and at the monthly meeting of the town council was instructed to give the man a week's notice and employ one of the Wallingford unemployed to replace him; and whether he will have inquiries made into the matter?


One miner only has been transferred under the transference scheme from Pontypool to Wallingford. This man was engaged by the town council, and I understand he has now been discharged. I am making further inquiry into this matter.
