HC Deb 15 December 1938 vol 342 c2205W
Mr. Sexton

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is prepared to consider increasing the number of signing-on stations for registered unemployed in Weardale and Teesdale, county of Durham, in order to obviate the necessity of long-distance travelling by persons ill-equipped, in warm clothing, sound footwear, and general physique, owing to lack of sufficient finance?

Mr. E. Brown

There are already three branch offices in Weardale and four in Teesdale and I regret that on my present information I should not feel justified in opening other offices.
