HC Deb 14 July 1938 vol 338 c1490
6. Mr. Hopkin

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has now received reports from the other Departments concerned regarding the suggestions put forward by the Llanelly employment committee for work in West Wales; and whether he can now make a statement?

Mr. E. Brown

The observations of the Departments concerned have now been received and I shall be sending a reply to the chairman of the committee in the next day or two.

Mr. Hopkin

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that unemployment is increasing in that area, and is it possible for him to take any steps to have it decreased?

Mr. Brown

I have seen a deputation, of which I think the hon. Member was a member, on this subject. The questions raised are too numerous to be dealt with in supplementary questions and answers.

Mr. James Griffiths

Will the reply which the right hon. Gentleman will be sending to the committee indicate the steps which the Government propose to take to deal with the situation?

Mr. Brown

I will send a copy of the reply to the hon. Member.

Mr. R. J. Taylor

If the right hon. Gentleman is able to give that indication to that committee, will he also be able to do so in the case of other districts?

Forward to
