§ 19. Mr. ROBERT WILSON
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will consider the advisability of altering the arrangement by which unemployed seamen residing in Jarrow-on-Tyne and Hebburn are asked to register at South Shieds Employment Exchange three times per week, involving a journey of three and a-half miles and five miles, respectively?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
In order to seek employment as seamen it is necessary for these men to visit South Shields, 1900 and I do not think it is unreasonable to require them to attend at the South Shields Exchange on alternate days, such attendance being the ordinary requirement for men residing from two to four miles away, as is the case here.
