HC Deb 16 July 1931 vol 255 cc799-800W

asked the Minister of Labour how many women have been offered domestic service at the seaside through the Willenhall Employment Exchange during the present year; how many have been sent; how many have returned owing to unsatisfactory conditions; and whether any difference is made between married and single women?


During the present year, 159 women from the Willenhall Employment Exchange have been offered domestic employment at the seaside, and 30 of these were placed. Five of the 30 women have returned home. In one case I do not yet know the reason, and in three of the remaining four there were allegations that the conditions were unsatisfactory, or that the situation was not suitable. Married women are not normally offered resident domestic service away from home.
