Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Works when the new employment exchange for Accrington will be built.
A new employment exchange at Accrington is included amongst those to be built in the future, but it cannot be undertaken for some years.
Is the Minister aware that this is a serious matter, that this exchange is very badly situated, inside an arcade, and that the buildings and rooms reflect no credit on his Department?
I know that the present premises are unsatisfactory. My Department has acquired another site which will be used for the new exchange to replace the present exchange.
Is there any use for an employment exchange there, since there is no unemployment in Accrington?
