HC Deb 04 December 1969 vol 792 c320W
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.
