HC Deb 27 June 1939 vol 349 cc223-4W

Mr. McGovern: asked the President of the Board of Trade what provision is being made for passengers travelling be- that in addition to the facilities for training and transfer available to the long-term unemployed, Durham benefits through the Special Areas Act and the work of the Special Commissioner. The Government's plans for the shipping and shipbuilding industries have also recently been announced and I hope that this will result in many shipbuilding workers who have been long out of work being placed in employment. The claims of long-term unemployed are constantly brought to the notice of prospective employers by all exchanges.
