§ 54. Mr. THORNE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has considered the resolution from the conference of distressed areas convened by the town clerk of Liverpool; and whether the Government will now fix 1st July, 1934, as the appointed day for the operation of Part II of the Unemployment Bill?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I cannot add to the answer I gave to the hon. Member on 23rd April.
Mr. GURNEY BRAITHWAITE
Is my hon. Friend aware that many of those who attended this conference and supported this resolution are engaged in their own towns in propaganda to the effect that the passage of the Unemployment Bill represents an attack upon working-class standards?
