asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the satisfaction given by the organisation of enjoyment for the people brought about by the circular issued by his Ministry; is it intended to make this a permanent feature; will he consider later the experience gained in order to increase and improve the facilities; why no action was taken in the large industrial area of Sal-ford; and will he give the industrial areas where no action was taken in the OFFICIAL REPORT?
The reports I have so far received indicate that the "Holidays-at-Home" schemes organised by local authorities have been most successful, and I should like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation of these local efforts. Whether they will be a permanent feature of our social organisation is not a matter which I can forecast but steps are being taken to keep a careful record of this year's experience as a guide for the future. As regards Salford, I understand that the annual holiday was commonly taken at Whitsun, and that it was not possible to organise holiday activities locally so early in the year. I regret the information asked for at the end of the Question is not available.
