§ 80. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Minister of Labour whether, with a view to possibilities in milling areas, he will inquire into what has been done in Greece, or Bulgaria, or Palestine, or Russia, or the Transvaal, with a view to dealing with unemployment among exceptional refugees?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of LABOUR (Mr. Betterton)
I do not at present see how the experience in dealing with refugees in these countries will help in the problem of transferring miners, but if the right hon. and gallant Member has any definite suggestion to make I will gladly consider it.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Has the hon. Gentleman not inquired into what has been done by Sir John Campbell in 2817 regard to Greek refugees, with a view to applying that experience to exactly similar cases in this country?
§ Mr. BETTERTON
I heard a speech of the right hon. and gallant Gentleman in which he developed that point in the House recently, but am sorry to say that I do not think, from his speech, that a similar measure is likely to be successful here.
