§ 77. Mr. Ross
asked the President of the Board of Trade what reply he has made to the representations sent to him by Kilmarnock Trades Council that Kilmarnock should be listed as a locality eligible for assistance under the Local Employment Act.
§ Mr. J. Rodgers
The Trades Council has been told that the Board of Trade do not regard Kilmarnock as a place where high and persistent unemployment exists or is threatened: it cannot, therefore, be listed as a locality eligible for assistance.
