§ 25. Mr. E. J. Williams
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that unemployment in Glamorganshire and Monmouthshire is 30.7 per cent. and 26.1 per cent., respectively; and whether 2161 he can state the positive proposals of the Government to deal with the serious condition of these distressed areas?
§ Mr. E. Brown
The Government are fully aware of the situation in these two counties and the additional measures that they have in mind for dealing with it will be announced very shortly.
§ Mr. Williams
May I ask what those measures are? The House has been waiting three or four years to know?
§ Mr. James Griffiths
Cannot the hon. Gentleman promise a day in view of the Prime Minister's promise to bring in the Bill this week?
