HC Deb 23 October 1958 vol 592 cc255-6W
Mr. Benn

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what progress has been made in Aden towards the establishment of employment bureaux; and whether he will agree to the work of such bureaux being supplemented by an advisory committee.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The Governor has considered with great care proposals for the establishment of an employment bureau in Aden; but has decided that in existing circumstances the present arrangements under which labour seeking employment is registered by the Commissioner of Labour is sufficient without the establishment of a separate employment bureau. The second part of the question does not therefore arise.
