HC Deb 01 April 1935 vol 300 c18
33. Miss WARD

asked the Minister of Labour what financial provisions he proposes to make in order that the work of Mr. Malcolm Stewart may be carried on without interruption?


As indicated in Note 3 to the Estimate (Class V, 14) for the Special Areas Fund, 1934 (H.C. 12, 1934–35) such further estimates for the fund as may be necessary will be presented to Parliament on the exhaustion of the present Vote of £2,000,000.


In view of the fact that certain persons persist in stating that £2,000,000 is the sum total that will be spent in the depressed areas, will the hon. Member take steps to make some outstanding statement on the subject?


I hope that this question and answer will secure the purpose that my hon. Friend has in mind.
