HC Deb 28 May 1924 vol 174 c441W
Lieut.-Colonel POWNALL

asked the Minister of Health what is the proposed expenditure in the current financial year on the Wash reclamation works; and how many men at present unemployed will be given employment thereby?


I have been asked to reply. The total estimated outlay is £32,000, which may be spread over two years. It is impossible to say how much will be spent during the current financial year. The number of men to be employed will he decided by the contractor, but probably no fewer than 200 unemployed will be required.
