asked the Minister of Labour whether he will give the number of unemployed persons who were transferred from the special areas in South Wales, either because of having secured employment themselves or were placed in employment by the exchanges, during the period December, 1934, to December, 1935?


During the year 1935, 3,253 men, 1,917 women, 1,678 boys and 1,559 girls, making a total of 8,407 persons, were transferred by the Departrnent from the special areas in South Wales to employment elsewhere.
