§ 46. Mr. WHEATLEY
asked the Prime Minister what steps the Government propose to take to deal with the serious increase in unemployment?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)
This is not a matter which can be dealt with by question and answer. A full statement, however, will be made of the Government's proposals when the Ministry of Labour Vote is taken.
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
Does not the right hon. Gentleman remember that no question of legislation can be discussed on such a Vote; and does not the alarming increase in the number of unemployed during the past fortnight justify us in expecting from him some statement as to what steps are being considered by the Government?
§ Mr. RAMSAY MacDONALD
In view of the seriousness of the situation, will the Government give us a day next week for a Vote of Censure on the subject?
