55. Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Minister of Health whether in those cases where unemployment is above the average for the rest of the country, he would recommend the Government to make larger financial grants to local authorities who were prepared to carry out works public utility by unemployed labour which, owing to their already heavy rates, they are unable to finance without further State assistance?
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
The representations recently placed before the Government on this subject are now being considered.
