§ 51. Mr. Greenwood
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the present high level of unemployment in Bacup; and what steps he is taking to introduce new industries into the town.
§ Mr. Erroll
I am aware that total unemployment, including a large proportion of workers temporarily stopped, has been at a high level during January and February. I am willing to give sympatheic consideration to applications for industrial development certificates for suitable projects which could not go to a development district.
