HC Deb 27 July 1931 vol 255 cc1950-1
76. Mr. MARCUS

asked the Minister of Transport if, in relation to all future road schemes sanctioned by his Department, he will make it a condition of grant that a reasonable proportion of unemployed agricultural workers shall be employed at the normal rates of wages applicable to this class of work?


My right hon. Friend does not see his way to attach conditions to grants from the Road Fund respecting the employment of men from any particular industry.
