§ 26. Sir KINGSLEY WOOD
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he proposes to introduce any special schemes relating to unemployment arising in the lace trade?
§ The LORD PRIVY SEAL (Mr. J. H. Thomas)
I cannot accept the suggestion that special measures will be required.
§ Sir K. WOOD
Does the right hon. Gentleman mean to say that he is paying 200 no regard to the effect which the action of the Chancellor of the Exchequer is likely to have upon the lace trade and is taking no steps in the matter?
§ Mr. THOMAS
I am quite sure that the right hon. Gentleman will be satisfied in knowing that his supplementary question will be printed in Nottingham.
§ Mr. CHARLES BROWN
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the lace employers in Nottingham have already given notice to the lace workers because there is a by-election, and not because of the lapse of the Safeguarding Duties?
§ Sir H. CROFT
Is the Lord Privy Seal aware that the 14 trade unions in Nottingham do not share his views and have definitely stated that they do not?
