Mr. Sylvester

asked the Minister of Labour how many persons are registered as unemployed at the following employment exchanges, Normanton, Castleford and Featherstone; and what number at each exchange are disabled persons, at the latest convenient date.

Mr. Isaacs

The following table gives the desired information, so far as it is available. There is no employment exchange at Featherstone, which is covered by the Pontefract employment exchange. Figures for Pontefract are accordingly given in the table:

Numbers registers as unemployed as unemployed at 14th February, 1949 Numbers included in previous column registered under the Disabled persons (Employment) Act, 1944
Normanton 65 20
Castleford 388 139
Pontefract 121 36

The figures given above exclude nine, 54, and 52 registered disabled persons at Normanton, Castleford and Pontefract, respectively, who require employment under sheltered conditions.
