§ 4. Mr. HENDERSON STEWART
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the closing of the jute mill in Springfield, Fife, with consequent unemployment of a considerable number of women workers, who are required to walk between two and three miles to register at the Cupar Employment Exchange; and whether he will consider making arrangements for the registration and payment of these unemployed persons in Springfield itself, so as to avoid the tiring journey now involved?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
I am having inquiries made, and will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
§ Mr. STEWART
Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind the fact that a number of these women workers are over middle age, and will he consider sending an official to Springfield once or twice a week to do what is necessary?
