HC Deb 07 May 1930 vol 238 c978W

asked the Lord Privy Seal how many applications to the Unemployment Grants Committee have been refused owing to the refusal or inability on the part of the local authority to provide work for a percentage of unemployed from distressed areas?


Four only out of over 300 local authorities who have made application for assistance involving the acceptance of transferred labour have withdrawn their applications for grant because of their unwillingness to employ a proportion of transferred men.
