asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the rooms of Labour Exchanges are avail able for use by trades councils; and, if not, whether he will make arrangements for these bodies to hold their meetings at Labour Exchanges where there are suit able rooms?

Under Regulation 8 (1) of the General Regulations for Labour Exchanges, accommodation within the premises of a Labour Exchange can be granted only for such purposes and on such terms and conditions as the Advisory Trade Committee of the district may approve. In some cases, but not in all, the Advisory Trade Committees concerned have approved of the Grant of accommodation to trades and labour councils. Under the Regulations the Board of Trade are bound by the decisions of the Advisory Committees in this matter.

May I ask if the Advisory Committees are aware that they have this power?
