HC Deb 01 August 1923 vol 167 c1458
66. Mr. T. THOMSON

asked the Minister of Health whether he is now able to state what additional assistance the Government are prepared to give to those necessitous industrial areas which, as the result of two winters of abnormal unemployment, are unable to meet the burdens which will be thrown upon their local rates without substantially more State assistance than they are now receiving?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Neville Chamberlain)

I hope to be able to make a statement on this question in the course of this evening's Debate.
