Mr. Rostron Duckworth
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that people merely wanting employment cards have to wait long hours at some Employment Exchanges owing to crowds of people waiting for jobs; and whether he will institute a different system for handling these inquiries?1189W
§ Mr. Bevin
The staffs of Employment Exchanges have been strengthened to deal with the increased volume of work, and I am not aware that cases of delay such as those referred to in this Question arise save in exceptional cases. I shall be pleased to make inquiries if my hon. Friend will let me have particulars.
