asked the Minister of Labour whether any steps have been taken to secure the consideration and approval of unemployment relief schemes in Scotland instead of such schemes being dealt with through the officials of the Unemployment Grants Committee in London?
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave on Thursday last to his question on the same subject. The arrangements I then outlined will, I hope, secure to the Unemployment Grants Committee and the local authorities in Scotland the expert advice and assistance which the hon. Member no doubt has in mind.
