§ 63. Mr. MANSFIELD
asked the Minister of Labour if she has received an application from the Hinderwell Urban District Council for a grant to enable them to commence certain schemes of work in that area for the purpose of providing employment for the unemployed miners who are laid idle as a result of the Boulby and Grinkle mines closing down; and, if so, what action she proposes to take in the matter?
§ Mr. LAWSON
Preliminary inquiries were made in April last by the Hinder-well Urban District Council regarding certain schemes of work in contemplation, but no formal application for grant from Exchequer Funds in aid of such works has yet been received by the Unemployment Grants Committee.
