10. Miss Ward
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the decision at present ruling prohibiting the erection of Government factories in the counties of Northumberland and Durham, he proposes to continue payment of travelling and removal expenses for people desirous of seeking employment in more fortunate areas?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for East Rhondda (Mr. Mainwaring) on 13th February.
Is my right hon. Friend going to alter the decision announced in the answer given to the hon. Member?
§ Mr. T. Smith
Is the household removal scheme still in operation? It was limited at one time to the Special Areas.
§ Mr. Dalton
Does the right hon. Gentleman admit the suggestion in the hon. Lady's Question that it has been decided that no more Government factories are to be set up in these two counties?
