HC Deb 10 July 1967 vol 750 cc3-4W
60. Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Minister of Labour what steps he is taking to expand the staffs of his Department's employment exchanges in Scotland in order to deal with the rise in unemployment in the winter of 1967 and the spring of 1968 which is indicated by the underlying trend of the latest unemployment figures.

Mr. Gunter

The system of staffing employment exchanges allows for adjustments—upwards or downwards—to deal with changes in the level of unemployment and no special steps are needed in Scotland.
