HC Deb 10 December 1929 vol 233 cc211-2

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he has considered the advisability of using the Unemployment Fund for the purpose of subsidising wages in respect of the anticipated schemes of industrial development, in consideration for the employment, on such work, of a minimum percentage of workers engaged through Ministry of Labour Employment Exchanges?

The LORD PRIVY SEAL (Mr. J. H. Thomas)

I would refer the hon. and gallant Gentleman to the reply which I gave on the 19th November to the hon. Member for North Newcastle (Sir N. Grattan-Doyle), of which I am sending him a copy.
