§ Mr. SHAW
The existing records do not enable this information to be given precisely in the form asked for. A White Paper is being prepared, in accordance with a promise given in the Debate on the Estimates for my Department; this Paper will set out in some detail the available information with regard to work provided for the relief of unemployment.
