HC Deb 02 August 1976 vol 916 c547W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will take action to ensure that jobcentres remain open on Saturdays.

Mr. Golding

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that the Employment Service Agency, in providing and developing its employment services, aims to cater for the needs of each local community. It would favour selective Saturday morning opening where there is considered to be a significant need, but the staff associations involved oppose this.
