HC Deb 04 February 1929 vol 224 c1394

asked the Prime Minister if, in view of the large number of unemployed for whom no work is in sight, the Government will consider a comprehensive scheme or schemes of national importance, such as road-making, to meet the emergency?

50. Mr. LAWSON

asked the Prime Minister the total number of miners who have been found work through the various Government schemes in operation during the past 12 months and the number of men in training; and whether the Government is satisfied with the results achieved or whether any further action in this matter is contemplated?


I have been asked to reply. I would refer the hon. Members to the reply given by my right hon. Friend on Wednesday last to the hon. Member for Shoreditch (Mr. Thurtle).
