asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the discontent of his staff who are housed in Metropole Buildings, Cleland House, Princes House and Stone House, arising from the inadequacy of the accommodation, the absence of rest rooms and sickroom facilities, poor lavatory and washing arrangements, and poor lighting system; and what steps are being taken in these respects to secure improved arrangements for these and other members of the staff who are, or have been, or will be transferred from Montagu House to different premises on account of the expansion of the Ministry due to National Service and Militia recruitment?
§ Mr. E. Brown
No, Sir. Some temporary inconvenience may be expected in the early stages of such large scale moves at short notice, but with the aid of my right hon. Friend the First Commissioner of Works and the usual good will of the staff concerned, a reasonable solution can generally be found. My Friend the First Commissioner will gladly look into any specific complaint.
