Mr. T. MORRIS
asked the Minister of Labour whether it is the policy of the 1491W Employment Exchanges to use special efforts to place married men who have been long unemployed; and whether, if necessary, he will consider the isuue of special instructions to that end?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
The general principle observed by the Employment Exchanges in filling vacancies notified to them is to select those persons whose qualifications make them most suitable for the employers' requirements. Subject to this consideration, due regard is paid to the cases of married men who have been long unemployed. I do not contemplate the issue of special instructions in the matter.
