§ 69. Mr. NOEL BUXTON
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the fact that in Labour Exchange offices which are on the premises of solicitors political placards of a partisan character are displayed in the same windows as the notices of the Labour Exchange; and whether this practice has his sanction?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Burns)
My attention has not been directed to any such case as that mentioned by my hon. Friend, which presumably refers not to a Labour Exchange, but to the office of a local agent of the Unemployment Fund. If he can give me any further particulars, I will make inquiries.
§ 70. Mr. CHARLES DUNCAN
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been directed to the case of an employer who has posted up a notice to the effect that any workman who is discharged for misbehaviour, or failing in his duty to the company, will not be recommended for benefit under the Act of Parliament dealing with unemployment; and whether, with a view to securing the proper and efficient working of the Act, he proposes to take any action in the matter?
