HC Deb 16 June 1921 vol 143 c642W

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to the notice which has been posted up at the Lord Roberts' Memorial Workshops, Nottingham, stating that they are to be closed at once; and if he intends to take any action in the matter?


My attention has been drawn to the position of the Lord Roberts' Memorial Workshop at Nottingham. I much regret that the Committee-of the Fund should have found it necessary to close this workshop, which has done very useful work. The Government, are considering arrangements which may help the Committee of the Fund to tide-over their present difficulties.
