HC Deb 30 July 1908 vol 193 c1729
MR. W. T. WILSON (Lancashire, Westhoughton)

To ask the First Commissioner of Works whether, in view of the amount of unemployment in the building trade, he will put in hand all new Government buildings, and alterations, additions, and repairs to existing buildings for which money has been voted by Parliament, with the object of relieving to some extent the distress now existing in this industry.

(Answered by Mr. Harcourt.) I said on 13th July, in answer to the hon. Member for West Ham, that I am as much interested as anybody in pressing on this work, and no time is being lost in doing so.
