§ 35. Mr. SCRYMGEOUR
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will, in view of his contemplated statement of Departmental policy regarding unemployed benefit, be able to report definitely on the long-standing remit to the Trade Dispute Disqualification Committee?
§ The MINISTER of LABOUR (Mr. T. Shaw)
The Committee have not yet presented a Report, but they have resumed their sittings and I understand will endeavour to report at an early date. I think it advisable that I should await the report of the Committee before making any statement on the subject.
§ Mr. SCRYMGEOUR
Will the Minister go into this matter personally, because it is two years since the subject was remitted to the Committee, and as it is of great importance will he do everything possible to expedite the Report'?
§ Mr. SHAW
I said in answer to a question previously, that the Committee were sitting. I have stated in answer to this question that I hope the Committee will present an early report. The matter is under consideration and it is my desire to have an early report. If I do not get an early report, it is my intention to press for it.
