Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Health. (14 Apr 1931)

Mr Arthur Shepherd: Yes, but will they do it? I know how near this is to the heart of the Parliamentary Secretary. We had hoped that the old men might be taken into institutions and that we could say to the young men who were likely to become confirmed vagrants, "Come along to a training centre where we will equip you for industry." I know that this is very difficult when there are 2,500,000 unemployed, but I...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Health. (14 Apr 1931)

Unemployment. (12 Feb 1931)

Mr Arthur Shepherd: I may have been lacking in my choice of words, but I would point this out to the right hon. Gentleman. Let us assume for a moment that a man of 65 considers it very harsh treatment to be compelled to come out of industry.
