HC Deb 22 July 1929 vol 230 cc884-5
52. Major THOMAS

asked the Prime Minister, in view of the proposed abandonment of Safeguarding and pending international agreement as to wages and labour conditions generally, what steps the Government propose to take with a view to maintaining in employment persons who may be displaced from safeguarded industries by the competition of sweated foreign labour.

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. J. Ramsay MacDonald)

I cannot undertake to answer so hypothetical a question.
