Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment. – in the House of Commons on 26th November 1936.
Alert me about debates like this
Mr. J. J. DAVIDSON:
after the Minister of Labour whether any further special consultation with regard to the Special Areas have taken place; and, if so, has he anything to report to the House?
I have nothing to add to the replies given on 23rd November to the hon. Member for Aberdare (Mr. G. Hall) and on 25th November to the hon. Member for Pontypool (Mr. Jenkins).
As the newspapers of the country have been circulating reports during the past week that steps have been taken, does the Minister deny it?
I cannot be asked to take responsibility for newspaper reports.
As this matter has been in the hands of the right hon. Gentleman and his Department for the last 15 months, is it not time something were done?
I have nothing further to add at the moment.
May I ask whether the Government have, in the light of their experience, decided to withdraw the Special Areas Bill?
I have already said that I have nothing to add to my answer.
