HC Deb 25 November 1937 vol 329 c1435W
Mr. Morgan

asked the Minister of Labour what action is taken by his Department to encourage agricultural labourers now receiving unemployment benefit to take up work in other parts of the country where there is a serious shortage of agricultural labour?

Mr. E. Brown

The Employment Exchanges take every opportunity of bringing agricultural vacancies notified to them to the notice of suitable persons who are available, and where the number of local applicants is insufficient to meet employers' requirements the vacancies are brought to the notice of persons in other districts.
