HC Deb 17 May 1895 vol 33 c1439
*SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies how long it is intended that an Imperial Commissioner, specially sent out for the purpose to Newfoundland, shall continue to employ persons on relief works at the expense of the home taxpayer, and shall go on giving a State assistance to the unemployed which is refused in England?


It is expected that the necessity for relief works will cease about the end of this month, when the fishery will be fairly opened.
