HC Deb 12 May 1930 vol 238 c1468W

asked the Minister of Health whether the stone-breaking and stone-shifting work imposed on men at Prince Rock is considered by his Department to be useful and appropriate work for the men concerned?


It is difficult to express an opinion on the possibilities of the work at the dumps at Prince Rock because there was so serious a lack of supervision and planning. As the scheme was actually run, I should myself consider that men were engaged on work which was not useful or appropriate.
