§ Mr. J. H. Osborn
asked the Minister of Labour what change he contemplates in the arrangements, announced on 2nd August, 1962, for the adjustment of the hours of opening of his smaller local offices.
§ Mr. Godber
These arrangements have been kept under review since their introduction and I consider that they have resulted in a better service for the public. I now intend to make one minor change by providing for the extension of Saturday morning closing, with compensatory late opening on an evening during the week, to the four small offices which I previously excluded because a Youth Employment Officer was in post.
