§ Major MALONE
asked the Minister of Labour whether with a view to finding employment for a great number of men now unemployed in Tottenham, Hornsey, Edmonton, and Wood Green, he will grant facilities for the extension of the tube from Finsbury Park through those districts where a large population, through their district councils, are asking the Minister of Transport and the Minister of Labour to receive deputations 1559W pressing for the extension of this tube; and whether he will use his influence with the Great Northern Railway to allow this extension to be carried out without further delay?
§ Lieut.-Colonel ASHLEY
I have been asked to reply. I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply which I gave yesterday to a question on the subject by the hon. Member for North Tottenham, of which I am sending the hon. and gallant Member a copy. I have, however, agreed to receive on Monday next, in conjunction with my hon. and gallant Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour, a deputation from the councils concerned.
