§ Sir F. KELLEY
asked the Prime Minister whether he has received the opinions of the principal trade unions on the subject of insurance by industries against unemployment in response to the inquiries of the right hon. Member for Glasgow Central (Mr. Bonar Law), who promised to consult these organisations in the matter; and does he propose legislation or further inquiry into the subject?
§ Sir M. BARLOW
I have been asked to reply. I addressed a communication to the National Confederation of Employers' Organisations and the Trades Union Congress General Council on the 28th November, 1922, enclosing a memorandum upon this subject and inviting their views. I understand from recent inquiries which I have made that the matter is still under consideration by them.
