§ 36. Mr. William Price
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what experiments are taking place in separating the employment and benefit functions of employment exchanges.
§ Mrs. Castle
Experiments in handling benefit work in separate premises from employment work are taking place at six exchanges, namely: Warrington, Blackpool, Swansea, Gloucester, Swindon and York. The results of the first five of these experiments have been evaluated, and I am considering how this separation might be extended.
