§ 45. Mr. GALLACHER
asked the Prime Minister on what grounds the Government have decided to refuse to meet representatives of the unemployed, Jarrow, and blind marchers now on their way to London with a view to putting grievances before the Government?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The grounds were fully stated in the statement which was published in the Press of 15th October, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member.
§ Mr. GALLACHER
is the Prime Minister not aware that I have read that statement and that it is not satisfactory, and will he not recognise that the feeling throughout the country was in favour of the Government on this occasion receiving a deputation from the marchers and discussing with them?
§ Mr. H. G. WILLIAMS
Has the Prime Minister received reports as to whether any deputations of hunger marchers have recently been received at the Kremlin?
