HC Deb 15 December 1938 vol 342 c2202W
Sir W. Jenkins

asked the Minister of Health whether he is taking any steps to ascertain what effect the continued unemployment in West Wales, from Port Talbot to Burry Port, will have upon the local authorities in these areas?

Mr. Elliot

If the hon. Member will let me know whether he considers that any particular services of the local authorities are likely to be adversely affected, and in what area, I will make inquiries. I would remind him that Port Talbot and the Rural District of Neath are included in a Special Area and are therefore eligible for assistance from the Commissioner.
