HC Deb 29 June 1908 vol 191 cc359-60
MR. HAROLD COX (Preston)

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is intended this year to ask for the sum of £200,000, or for any other sum, in connection with the Unemployed Workmen Act; if so, when he proposes to submit an Estimate to the House for this sum; and whether any provision was made in the Budget for this additional expenditure.


This subject is still under consideration. No provision for a grant under the Unemployed Workmen Act was included in this year's Budget, or in the Budget of either of the two preceding years.


pointed out that the margin for contingencies would not cover this item.
