HC Deb 17 December 1929 vol 233 c1176
45. Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

asked the Prime Minister whether he proposes to invite representatives of the opposition parties to assist him in concerting measures to bring about a reduction in unemployment?

46. Major HARVEY

asked the Prime Minister what steps he has taken to consult the leaders of other parties with a view to formulating more effective schemes for the relief of unemployment?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)

I would refer the hon. and gallant Members to the answer which I gave on the 18th November in reply to questions on this subject, there being no change in the situation since then.


In view of the fact that the success of the schemes which have been, so far, formulated by the right hon. Gentleman and his party, has not been reflected in the figures of unemployment, has he taken any steps to consult with the Leader of the Independent Labour party?
