asked the Minister of Labour whether any complaints have been received by his Department that, owing to the transference of miners from distressed areas, persons have been unable to secure employment in their own districts in consequence of the work having been given to the miners?
How can they be without foundation seeing that in a town like Plymouth, where there have been 5,000 or 6,000 unemployed for many years, if miners who are transferred there are to get work it is obvious that they are putting men out of work or preventing the unemployed from getting work?
The hon. Gentleman has put a very general question which involves a very general answer. If he has any specific point which he wishes to bring to my attention and he will put down a question with regard to it, I shall be glad to answer it.
