§ 2. Mr. WARDLAW-MILNE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he can form any estimate of the 1052 number of Europeans and Anglo-Indians now unemployed in India; whether his attention has been drawn to the grave conditions arising out of such unemployment; and whether the Government of India is taking any action in the form of creating employment by means of public works or otherwise to meet the present situation?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Earl Winterton)
My Noble Friend has no recent detailed information on the subject, but will ask the Government of India for a report.
§ Mr. WARDLAW-MILNE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is grave distress arising from unemployment in India and that there are some very serious cases in Calcutta?
