HC Deb 05 December 1932 vol 272 c1231

asked the Minister of Health the amount paid out in relief for unemployed agricultural labourers in Norfolk during the past two years and the cost of administration entailed?


The poor-relief returns made to my Department do not distinguish the amount of poor-relief paid to unemployed agricultural workers. The information desired by my hon. Friend is accordingly not available.

52. Mr. COOK

asked the Minister of Labour if he will receive for consideration a scheme from the Norfolk County Public Assistance Committee which will find work for unemployed agricultural labourers, provided that such schemes entail no increased charge to the public purse?

The MINISTER of LABOUR (Sir Henry Betterton)

I shall be glad to receive particulars of this scheme.
