HC Deb 02 August 1906 vol 162 c1362
MR. FELL (Gt. Yarmouth)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been called to the great harvest in prospect in Manitoba and to the appeal for 20,000 men to help to gather it; and whether he will in connection with the committees under the Unemployed Act supply the men to do at any rate a part of this work instead of farming at Hollesley Bay or other farm colonies.


I have considered the suggestion of the hon. Member, but it does not appear that I could render any effective assistance with regard to it.
