§ 47. Mr. MAXTON
asked the Prime Minister whether the Lord Privy Seal will continue to perform the duties in connection with unemployment attached to that office by the Labour Government?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)
The answer is in the negative. I would, however, refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave on 16th November in reply to a question by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for North-East Bethnal Green (Major Nathan).
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The answer to which I refer stated that the Lord Privy Seal at the moment would not do it, and that no one for the moment has been told off to do it, but that the whole matter is under consideration.
§ Major MILNER
Cannot the Lord Privy Seal's services be made available in connection with the Land Values Tax?
§ Mr. MAXTON
Will questions now have to be addressed to the Minister of Labour dealing with unemployment?
§ Mr. McGOVERN
Are we to take it that this is simply a £1,800 a year pension that the Lord Privy Seal is going to receive?
