HC Deb 23 April 1923 vol 163 c31

asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health whether, in view of the impoverishment of the working class in the city of Dundee, His Majesty's Government will set up a Committee to inquire into the health and general standard of life of those employed in the jute industry?

Captain ELLIOT

I am not satisfied that the conditions in Dundee are so exceptional as to render it necessary to institute an inquiry of the nature suggested by the hon. Member.
