My Lords, I beg to move the Motion standing in my name on the Order Paper.

Moved, That a Select Committee be appointed to consider and make recommendations on long-term remedies for unemployment.—( Lord Soames.)

My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord for introducing this. After all, the country is facing a serious unemployment problem. I am sure their Lordships will devote their attention to this matter and no doubt a very valuable report will be produced.

On Question, Motion agreed to.
