HC Deb 12 May 1931 vol 252 cc1004-5W

asked the Minister of Labour in how many cases in the Isle of Wight her Department has assisted allotment holders under the scheme introduced by the Minister of Agriculture for the benefit of the unemployed; and what has been the nature of the assistance?


Local officers of the Ministry of Labour are co-operating in the scheme by bringing the facilities available to the notice of unemployed or partly employed persons. Four application forms for plots have been issued in the Isle of Wight for completion and return to the local authorities concerned, and a certain number of inquirers for seeds were referred to the appropriate local organisation.
