§ Captain LOSEBY
asked the Prime Minister if he has received a letter from the Lord Mayor of Bradford informing him that, owing to the Yorkshire coal strike, fifty factories in the city of Bradford have been compelled to close, and that 25,000 people are out of work; and what steps the Government propose to take in the matter?
§ Sir R. HORNE
I have been asked to reply to this question. The Prime Minister has received a communication from the Lord Mayor of Bradford in the terms indicated by the hon. and gallant Member. The Government are keeping closely in touch with the situation, and are taking advantage of every opportunity to bring about a settlement.
