§ Mr. E. Brown
At 22nd February, 1937, there were 137,067 insured persons, aged 14–64, in the coal mining industry classification recorded as unemployed in Great Britain.
§ Mr. Shinwell
Can the right hon. Gentleman point to any Government proposal which is calculated to absorb these unemployed?
§ Mr. James Griffiths
If a miner secures temporary employment in some other occupation is he thereafter still counted as a miner, or is he classified as some other kind of workman?
§ Mr. Lawson
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the reduction to which he refers is scarcely equal to the death-rate, and the rate at which people are removed from the register for other causes?
