HC Deb 20 March 1929 vol 226 c1741W
Viscount SANDON

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has any information or figures as to men or boys transferred from the distressed mining areas, under Government auspices or otherwise, finding on arrival in the new area that there is no such post available as that promised, or that it has been filled, or, in other cases, that it was only of a few weeks' duration?


The arrangements for transference through the Employment Exchange machinery provide special safeguards to meet the contingencies referred to by my Noble Friend. My information is that difficulties such as he has in mind arise in a very small proportion of cases only.
