asked the Minister of Labour what Reports have been made by juvenile advisory committees as to any shortage of labour in the near future?

Information on this point is contained in the Memorandum on the Shortage, Surplus and Redistribution of Juvenile Labour during the years 1928 to 1933, based on the views of local juvenile employment committees, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend. More recently, a number of juvenile advisory committees have referred to the question in their annual reports for 1929. In order, however, that, so far as possible, complete and up-to-date information on uniform lines may be available, the claims disallowed at Tyneside Exchanges during the periods in question.national advisory councils for juvenile employment have been asked to review-again the position in their respective areas.

asked the Minister of Labour whether any classes have been set up in the London area for unemployed juveniles?

Approved courses of instruction for unemployed boys and girls were established by the London County Council at Bethnal Green and Bermondsey on 6th January under the scheme which was recommended by the National Advisory Council for Juvenile Employment and came into force on 1st January.
