§ Mr. McSHANE
asked the Minister of Labour if she can assure local authorities that the present grants in respect of unemployment schemes of work will be available during the next autumn and winter?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
As my hon. Friend doubtless knows, these schemes must be submitted and the necessary preparations made well in advance if they are to be in operation during the autumn and winter. Local authorities have therefore been asked to submit their schemes by 30th June, and the schemes submitted must be such as can be actively commenced by 31st October.
