§ 51. Mr. GORDON MACDONALD
asked the Minister of Labour if he will state the number of persons in Jarrow-on-Tyne that have been unemployed for five years or more; and what steps are being taken to provide employment in that town?
§ Sir H. BETTERTON
I regret that statistics giving the information desired are not available. As to the second part of the question, the only effectual way to provide employment is by a revival in trade, and the Government are bending all their efforts in this direction.
