HC Deb 02 December 1930 vol 245 cc2009-11W

asked the Minister of Health what local authorities have applied for grants from the Unemployment Relief Fund; what the respective amounts the subject of such applications are; the works such local authorities respectively propose to put in hand; and the number of men for whom employment will be found in connection with such works?


Since 1st June, 1929, 4,773 schemes of work for the relief of unemployment, of a total estimated cost of £84,500,000, have been submitted to the Unemployment Grants Committee by local authorities and other statutory bodies eligible to make application for grant under the Development (Loan Guarantees and Grants) Act, 1929. I am afraid that detailed particulars of such applications cannot be supplied without an undue amount of labour. The Committee have prepared a report dealing with their work up to the 30th August last, which will shortly be presented to Parliament.
