34. Mr. PALMER
asked the Minister of Labour what steps, if any, have been taken by his Department to re-open the vacant State factory at Woolwich and equip it with machinery in order to carry nut the engineering requirements of the Russian Government, who are prepared to place sufficient orders in this country to provide 70,000 engineering workers with employment for at least 12 months?
§ Sir K. WOOD
Before he prepared that reply, did the right hon. Gentleman refer to the many promises which the Prime Minister made on this subject when he was last in Woolwich?
