asked the Prime Minister whether he proposes during the Recess to publish the Report of the Cabinet Committee on the question of unemployment; and whether the Cabinet Committee, which is reviewing the whole position of trade and unemployment, will investigate the reasons for high prices in certain of the chief industries of the country, more especially coal?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

As regards the first part of the question, it is not customary to publish reports of Cabinet Committees. In reply to the second part of the question, the Cabinet Committee has been appointed to review the whole position of trade and employment. It will make all the inquiries which it may consider necessary, but I cannot say in detail what these inquiries will be.
