The policy of the Government in regard to State-assisted schemes fat the relief of unemployment was very fully explained in the statements, to which I would. refer the hon.

The resolution from the Association of Municipal Corporations to which the hon. Member for Walsall refers has been received and acknowledged, but no further reply has been sent.
