§ 9. Mr. SHAKESPEARE
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in the estimates made of persons employed under schemes initiated by the present Government, the number employed by expenditure out of the Road Fund is included?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
The figures include men employed on works of improvement and new construction on classified roads and bridges. They do not include men employed on normal works of maintenance, repair and reconstruction.
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
If the numbers fall every time we ask a question, will there be anyone employed at all, directly?
