§ Mr. RAMSBOTHAM
asked the Minister of Labour how many men have actually been transferred in connection with the schemes promoted by the different authorities of the country for the relief of unemployment since 1st June, 1929?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
The information desired is not available, but I am inquiring whether arrangements can be made to obtain it. Of the 55,000 men directly employed at the end of April on schemes assisted by grants from the Unemployment Grants Committee, Ministry of Transport and Ministry of Agriculture, 5,336 were men transferred from depressed areas.
