§ Mr. Champion
asked the Minister of Labour if, having regard to the increase in short-time working in the area, he will 172W reopen the Borrowash, Derbyshire, employment exchange.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
No. The number of short-time workers from the Borrowash area claiming unemployment benefit at a recent date does not, in my opinion, make this step necessary. I will, however, keep the position under review.
