Winter Prospects.

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment. – in the House of Commons on 10th July 1922.

Alert me about debates like this



asked the Prime Minister if a Cabinet Committee is considering the prospects of employment during the coming winter; if so, when it is likely to report; and, if not, whether, in view of the trade position, he will set up such a Committee with instructions to report at the earliest moment as to whether any early steps are necessary to deal with the problems that will be raised by unemployment during the coming winter?

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The Committee is expected to report at an early date, and the whole subject will then be considered.
