HC Deb 23 October 1908 vol 194 c1491
MR. LAURENCE HARDY (Kent, Ashford)

To ask the Prime Minister whether he can give an undertaking that the debate on unemployment will not take place until the returns which have been prepared with regard to local loans and special loans for unemployed, and which he promised to the House, have been circulated amongst Members of the House.

(Answered by Mr. Asquith.) It is evident that the debate which has been fixed for Monday cannot be postponed. A statement relative to loans sanctioned by the Local Government Board, or with respect to which application for sanction has been made to them, will be laid upon the Table to-day, and every effort will be made to get it circulated by Monday.
