§ 33. Mr. Craven-Ellis
asked the Minister of Health what part he intends to take to ensure the working people having an adequate wage income so that each family may be in a position to pay an economic rental and free this class from the hardship of not being able to live decently without Government assistance?
§ Mr. E. Brown
The determination of wage incomes for the population at large does not come within my sphere of responsibility.
§ Mr. Craven-Ellis
If local authorities are subsidised, is it not a modern form of poor law relief on the large scale served out on the silver platter and is it not demoralising to this section of the community?
§ Mr. G. Griffiths
Is it not a fact that the reason why the workers have not had an increase in wages is that private enterprise has kept them down all the time?
