§ MR. W. S. CAINE (Bradford, E.)
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Department if, in view of the exceptional number of unemployed persons in Bradford, he can hasten forward the commencement of the work upon the Bradford Barracks?
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. WOODALL, Hanley)
The work to be done at Bradford is mostly out-of-doors work, which could not be carried on in this severe weather, even if funds were available; but the services are for the ensuing financial year, and money is not available during the present year. I may add that the whole, service is not of sufficient importance to afford appreciable help to 562 the unhappily large number of unemployed.
