HC Deb 08 April 1930 vol 237 cc1943-4
37. Mr. KELLY

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether his attention has been called to cases of refusal to renew leases of land now in use for the employment of men in industry when such refusal will result in throwing men out of work; and whether he is prepared to take action to prevent the stoppage of necessary work owing to causes of this nature?


If my hon. Friend has any particular case of this kind in mind, and will supply me with the particulars, I will look into it.


Has my right hon. Friend's attention been called to what is happening in the tin mining and china clay industries, in which there is likely to be serious unemployment owing to a member of the other House refusing to renew leases?


My particular attention has not been called to what I presume is the action of the Noble Lord in question, but it is not for me to judge the case until I have investigated it. If particulars are sent to me, I will certainly look into them.
