§ 12. Mr. LONGDEN
asked the Minister of Labour the number and kind of relief schemes approved by the Unemployed Grants Committee in respect of Birmingham for each of the last three years, with the estimated cost of and number of persons employed on each scheme?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
As the answer contains a number of figures, I propose to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following is the answer:
§ No schemes of work for the relief of unemployment were submitted to the Unemployment Grants Committee from Birmingham during the two years ended the 30th June, 1928 and 1929, respectively, although extensions of schemes previously sanctioned were approved to the amount of £29,217. In the year ended 30th June, 1930, schemes were approved of an estimated total cost of £973,495. It is estimated that these schemes will find employment equivalent to 33,683 man-months.
§ The following table gives the particulars of each scheme:
