HC Deb 01 February 1934 vol 285 c565W

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to the inconvenience occasioned by the lack of lavatory accommodation for those attending at the Fulham Employment Exchange; and whether he will take steps to have suitable accommodation provided?


My right hon. Friend has stated on several occasions that the responsibility for the provision of lavatories for members of the public attending at Employment Exchanges is not one that can be accepted by his Department. I may point out that every possible step is taken, by means of timing systems and otherwise, to deal with applicants without unnecessary delays. Moreover, notices are exhibited in the Exchanges giving the addresses of the nearest lavatories. As regards the Walham Green Exchange, representations have been received on the subject, but no complaints have been made by the applicants themselves.
