We have referred in a leading article to the decision

to set up a Commission to inquire into Unemployment Insurance. We suppose that this must be taken to mean that the All-Party Conference on the subject has failed to agree. There will be an inevitable delay, though the Government propose to reduce the delay to a minimum by insisting upon Interim Reports on the most pressing questions. The Government in the presence not only of this subject but of unemployment generally have a dreary, listless, despairing look. The debate on the Address on Wednesday went badly for them, and Sir Oswald Mosley did not spare them.
