How to use this source to help you answer the big question   *
You need to study the source carefully before you decide whether it supports or contradicts any of the reasons in the Big Question.
* * *
* Ask yourself *
* * *
* What is the condition of the men in source 2a? *
* * *
* How do you think the cottage in source 2b compared with the London homes of the unemployed? *
* * *
* Source 2c shows produce grown by unemployed men which they then sold successfully. Does this source prove the Hollesley Bay scheme was a success? *
* * *
* This scheme could find work for about 200 unemployed workers. Do you think this made much of an impression on the problem of unemployment in London? (You may want to come back to this question after looking at other sources.) *
