§ 45. Mr. BECKER
asked the Prime Minister what preparation the Government has made to relieve unemployment during the coming winter?
46. Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the serious prospects of the continuance of a large amount of unemployment, what further steps the Government are taking to provide for the situation which will arise in the coming winter; and whether the public work to be put in hand or assisted and the funds available will provide employment for as many men as were employed by similar means last winter?
§ 50. Mr. SNOWDEN
asked the Prime Minister what special steps are being taken by the Government, in view of the serious statements as to the trade outlook recently made by Ministers, to deal with the unemployment problem during the coming winter?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
It is not possible to deal with this matter by means of question and answer. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour, however, proposes to make a full statement on the subject before the House adjourns, and perhaps hon. Members will await that statement.
Mr. T. THOMSON
Will the Government in making their statement have regard to the fact that the financial position of those areas where unemployment is greatest is worse than it was last year?
