HC Deb 28 February 1938 vol 332 c756W
Mr. J. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to the increase in unemployment in the county of Carmarthen; and, in view of the fact that 25 per cent. of the insured population in the county is unemployed, what steps he is taking to deal with the position?

Mr. E. Brown

I would refer the hon. Member to the answers which I gave to him and to the hon. Member for Carmarthen (Mr. Hopkin) on 2nd December last and on 17th February respectively. I should add that I am authorised by the Secretary of State for War to state that it has been decided to erect a munitions factory in this district.
