§ 45. Sir K. WOOD
asked the Prime Minister whether he has received any advice which he can make available to the House from the Economic Advisory Council on the subject of unemployment?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)
The proceedings of the Economic Advisory Council are confidential, but I may say, in general, that important aspects of the problem of unemployment have been and are, naturally, under review by the council.
§ Mr. BOOTHBY
In view of the apparent uselessness of this council, will the right hon. Gentleman consider its abolition?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
Will the right hon. Gentleman obtain, for the immediate information of the House, the opinion of the council on the proposals contained in the Liberal Motion?
