HC Deb 11 February 1930 vol 235 cc204-5
28. Mr. COCKS

asked the Lord Privy Seal with regard to schemes to deal with the unemployment problem in Nottinghamshire which have been submitted by local authorities to his Department, which authorities have submitted such schemes; whether he will give particulars of such schemes; which of these schemes have been approved and which are still under consideration; and whether he can give an estimate of the cost and of the additional employment which will be given in each case?


While I am anxious to give the hon. Member any information which will be useful, the particulars for which he asks covering the whole county, will have to be obtained from several Departments and will involve time and labour. If he will inform in which of the local authorities he is particularly interested I will obtain and send him the information.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that he answered precisely a similar question in regard to Derbyshire a fortnight ago? If Derbyshire can get the information, why not Nottingham?


Because the Derbyshire Members did what I am asking the hon. Member to do. They stated specifically what they wanted.
