asked the First Com- missioner of Works if, before approving the plans for the new Employment Ex- change in Bristol, he will satisfy himself that adequate and suitable conveniences for both sexes are provided?

For reasons Which have been given in this House, it is the policy of my Department or of Ministry of Labour to provide conveniences for applicants attending Employment Exchanges. The plans for the Bristol Exchange have been discussed with the local employment committee, and arrangements have been made to meet cases of emergency.

Can my right hon. Friend say whether the local Employment Exchange committee are fully satisfied with the plans?

I should not like to say that anybody is satisfied with anything, but, so far as it is possible to satisfy them, I think they are.

Is my right bon. Friend aware that in Berlin and in other large Continental cities there is provision of this sort?
