46. Mr. BAT EY
asked the Prime Minister if he will lay before this House a White Paper giving full details of ale schemes for the alleviation of unemployment which the Government have now under consideration?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)
I have already explained the policy of the Government in regard to the provision of employment. As regards the alleviation of the condition of the unemployed, I would ask the hon. Member to await the statement which will be made by the Minister of Labour in the course of the Debate this afternoon.
§ The PRIME MINISTER
Yes, that will be most appropriate to the discussion which we are to have to-day.
§ Mr. KIRKWOOD
Arising from the original reply, is the right hon. Gentleman not in a position to tell the House whether the Minister of Labour has anything definite to tell us regarding the schemes the Government have to alleviate unemployment?
