HC Deb 31 July 1923 vol 167 cc1266-7
46. Lieut.-Colonel NALL

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that disabled men were successfully trained in watch-case making and similar work in a private factory in Manchester but, owing to competing imports, the work could not be continued; and whether the Government will afford to this and similar trades facilities at least equal to any granted to the Brighton diamond factory?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)

I have no information as to the first part of the question, and I am not therefore in a position to determine whether the circumstances are the same as those which existed in the case of the Brighton diamond factory.


Will the right hon. Gentleman see to it that any facilities which are given to the Brighton diamond factory are extended to the Fort William diamond factory?
