(by Private Notice) asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport if his attention has been called to the state of affairs on the Watling Street scheme for the relief of the unemployed; whether he knows that Messrs. McAlpine are erecting huge mechanical excavators, each capable of doing the work of 200 unemployed men; and whether he considers that to be in keeping with the spirit of the House of Commons grant for the relief of the unemployed?

Notice of this question has only reached me since I came into the House, and I have not been able to make the necessary inquiries. I will do so, and communicate with my hon. Friend.
