§ 52. Sir GRATTAN DOYLE
asked the Prime Minister when a statement may be expected detailing the plans of the Government in regard to unemployment: and, if the plans of the Government are not yet matured, what temporary steps he proposes to take to alleviate the distress prevailing in the industrial areas?
§ Mr. CLYNES
The Government are not yet in a position to make a detailed statement on their plans in regard to unemployment. The temporary steps which it is proposed to take have been announced from time to time in this House.
Sir G. DOYLE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that at the Election, in a manifesto by the Labour party, signed by the Prime Minister and himself, the statement was made that the Labour party was the only party which had an effective remedy for unemployment?
