§ 18. Mr. JOWETT
asked the Minister of Labour whether the Government intends to take any further action to bring about a settlement of the dispute in the woollen industry?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
As ray hon. Friend is aware I can take no further action without the joint consent of the parties. They know that, if there is any useful step which can be taken, my services are at their disposal.
§ Mr. JOWETT
Is it nothing to the Government that this great industry, built up by the skill and dexterity of generations of workers, should be allowed to drift into ruin?
