asked the Minister of Labour the average total cost per week of the Westminster Employment Exchange, men's and women's departments separately, and of the Great Marlborough Street Employment Exchange?

The staff at Employment Exchanges depends so largely on the volume of unemployment that it is not possible to give a reliable average figure of cost. For the Exchanges mentioned the present weekly cost of staff and premises, which it should be noted covers a very high level of unemployment, are, approximately, as follow:

Westminster—Men's Department140
Westminster Women's Department52
Great Marlborough Street112
About 25 per cent. should be added to these figures for headquarters and other common expenses.
